William and the Windmill

The Graham Sustainability Institute, in conjunction with the Dow Sustainability Fellowship, and with support from the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, is pleased to present film director Ben Nabors and his recent documentary William and the Windmill. The film will be screened on December 4, 2013 at 8 p.m. in the Penny and Roe Stamps Auditorium located in the Walgreen Drama Center on North Campus. This event is free and open to the public.

William and the Windmill is a film about a young Malawian named William Kamkwamba, who, despite unbelievable circumstances, builds a power-generating windmill from scrap parts, effectively rescuing his family from famine and poverty. This feature-length documentary calls into question issues of sustainable development and tells the story of a unique individual, whose incredible invention sets in motion a series of events that will forever change his life.
