Director: Ben Nabors
USA/Malawi/South Africa, 2013, 88 mins
William Kamkwamba, a young Malawian, builds a power-generating windmill from scrap parts to rescue his family from famine, transforming his life and launching him onto the world stage. His success leads to new opportunities and complex choices, distancing him from the life he once knew.
