SXSW: 'William and the Windmill' Trailer Introduces Teen Malawian Inventor (Exclusive Video)
Ben Nabors' documentary has its world premiere on March 10.
William and the Windmill, Ben Nabors' film about a young Malawian who builds a power-generating windmill, will have its world premiere at the 2013 South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival on March 10.
The film, screening in the festival's documentary competition, follows William Kamkwamba as he rescues his family from poverty by using junk parts to build the windmill. His creation throws him into the international spotlight, allowing him to meet fellow inventors and entrepreneurs who help him see a brighter future for himself. But with his newfound fame comes new challenges as he struggles with straddling two cultures while trying to find a path for his future.
THR here hosts an exclusive trailer for the film. The intriguing clip shows Kamkwamba as he travels the world, speaking about his inventions and attending the TEDGlobal 2007 conference in Arusha, Tanzania, as a guest. "Maybe people out there, they're waiting, they're expecting lots of things from me. So, I just feel like, what's next?" he says in the clip.
Screenings of William and the Windmill are as follows:
Sunday, March 10 -- 1:30 p.m., Stateside Theatre
Monday, March 11 -- 5:30 p.m., Violet Crown 3 & 4
Thursday, March 14 -- 11:15 a.m., Stateside Theatre
