Mohamed Nasheed, President of Maldives, on Making The Island President

George asks President Nasheed if he chose to make the film since his tiny country can't afford to pay for lots of publicity. The president responds by saying he didn't actually know a film was being made. He's quite surprised that it was turned into a film that "came all the way to Toronto."
