The Flynn is pleased to be the host site of Community Cinema. Community Cinema is a community outreach offshoot of the PBS Series Independent Lens, which broadcasts different documentary films each month. The screenings held here will be 60-minute ‘preview’ versions of these films, followed by a community forum or panel discussion.

ABOUT THIS FILM:

By John Shenk, Bonni Cohen, Richard Berge

Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed is confronting a problem greater than any world leader has ever faced—the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. His is the most low-lying country in the world, and a minor rise in sea level would literally erase it from the map.

Join us for a post-film discussion with Paul Madden. Madden is Vice-Chair of the Vermont Council on World Affairs and a long-time water activist who currently serves as technical adviser to Friends of Northern Lake Champlain, working with farmers and municipalities in northwestern Vermont on water quality issues. He was the Executive Director of Friends of Northern Lake Champlain from 2006 to 2012 and calls Enosburg Falls home.

This project is a partnership of the Flynn Center, Vermont Public Television, and the OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) at the University of Vermont.
