AFF Feature: William and the Windmill

Annapolis Film FestFourteen-year-old Malawian William Kamkwamba teaches himself to build a power-generating windmill from junk parts, successfully rescuing his family from poverty and famine. He becomes an energy icon for the developing world and meets American entrepreneur and mentor Tom Rielly, who helps him imagine a new future. Fame, opportunity, stress, and isolation follow in this story of a young man straddling two cultures and carrying the burdens of his past achievements while boldly pursuing a bright future.
