Director and executive producer Ben Nabors was recently interviewed by American Film Showcase about "William and the Windmill" and documentary filmmaking.
William’s windmill first attracted me to this story. It was a beautiful image, a romantic idea, and a very powerful force in his life. As a symbol, it was potent and magnetic. As a machine, it was practical. Originally, I thought this film would be about William and his first windmill, but over time it became something else entirely.
