The Canberra Times Profiles W&W

WILLIAM AND THE WINDMILL played at the Canberra Film Festiva in Australia l last week and we sat down to talk to the Canberra Times about the film.

New York-based film-maker Ben Nabors, who spent five years following and filming William in Malawi, South Africa (where he attended boarding school) and the US, told the Malawi News Agency recently that he was impressed by William's commitment to his community.
''It is not easy to transition between countries and cultures, but William handles it remarkably well,'' Nabors said.
''He is an amazing individual, not just for his invention of a windmill, but for how he continues to pursue his personal goals of education and alternative energy sources, as well as motivate others to dream big.''
