[Marxism] The Island President

My first inkling that there was something a bit “off” about The 
Island President, a documentary opening at the Film Forum in NYC 
on March 28, was when the opening credits revealed that the Ford 
Foundation was a co-producer. Since the film is a profile of 
recently deposed Maldives Islands president Mohamed Nasheed’s 
efforts to reverse the global warming that is threatening to turn 
his country into a new Atlantis, I had to wonder how such 
mainstream backing would influence the film’s editorial content.
