On day two of the Virginia Film Festival, podcaster Sean McCord spoke with Ben Nabors, director of William and the Windmill, his documentary about Willliam Kamkwamba, who as a 14 year old boy on his Malawi village, built a windmill to generate electricity for his family. Five years later, following a talk he gave at an African TED conference, William has become a media star and has to deal with the very modern problems of fame, isolation, and stress.

William and the Windmill screened on Saturday November 9 at 2:00 PM in UVA’s Culbreth Theater.
