Fundraiser Film Screening: William and the Windmill at The Arts House Cafe

About

With only a library book as his guide, 14-year-old William Kamkwamba builds a windmill in his Malawian village that changes his life forever. Using junk parts and an inexhaustible imagination, he harnesses enough energy to power a generator that saves his family from famine and resuscitates his dying farming community.

An instant media sensation, the teen soon has the ability to chart a previously unimaginable future of TEDtalks, Ivy League schools, and speaking tours. But despite the help of an American entrepreneur who helps navigate his success, some changes threaten to capsize him. He was once just a kid back home, but suddenly he's a village leader. Away at school, the famous boy inventor struggles on a steep learning curve. Cameras capture the dramatic upheavals, external pressures, and subtle shifts of perspective in this inspiring story of a young man facing the changes that a humble homemade windmill set in motion.

Winner of the SXSW Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary, The Austin Chronicle calls it "a subtle but beautiful portrait," and Indiewire described it as "a fascinating look at the tricky balancing act of third world activism."

Fundraising for TEMWA
This film is shown with the kind permission of the director/producer Ben Nabors to help raise money for a Bristol-based charity called Temwa. Temwa works alongside isolated communities in Malawi - one of the poorest countries in the world. Temwa aims to fight poverty, hunger and disease through projects in health, education, forestry and agriculture.

The Bristol 10K is also part of the fundraising campaign for Temwa. If you are feeling especially generous and would like to be a sponsor, you can donate here: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=TeamTemwa&pageUrl=1+!

The Arts House provide an extensive range of teas, single source coffees, cakes and alcohol to keep you refreshed during the screening!
