WILLIAM AND THE WINDMILL is playing this week at the University of Iowa in collaboration with their University of Iowa Center for Human Rights.
Every year residents of nearby Johnson County, Iowa come together to read and discuss one book in their “One Community, One Book” program, sponsored by the university. This year the book was "The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind" by William Kamkwamba. They wrote this about the screenings:
This week, Ben Nabors is in Iowa City to screen his new, award-winning film, “William and the Windmill,” which also is based on Kamkwamba’s story. The first of two screenings took place Tuesday on the University of Iowa campus. The second will begin at 6:30 p.m. today in West High’s Little Theatre, 2901 Melrose Ave. Nabors will be on hand afterward to answer questions.
This week’s screenings of Nabors’ documentary can serve either as a capstone to the discussions of the book that already have taken place or as an introduction for local adults and children who have yet to begin reading Kamkwamba’s story.
