This year Cinema Eye's nomination committee released their first-ever list of noteworthy documentary subjects. William Kamkwamba was recognized for his role in the film, and joined the list that's being called "The Unforgettables."
"Documentaries often live and die by the degree to which a subject will allow a filmmaker to come into their lives and record often private events for very public viewing," said Cinema Eye Founding Director AJ Schnack. "With this list, we hope to encourage the discussion of the subject’s role in the filmmaking process and to publicly acknowledge the rich collaborations that often take place between subjects and filmmakers.”
