Directed by Ben Nabors | 2013
"A fascinating look at the tricky balancing act of third world activism"
—Indiewire

Out of bottle caps, bicycle parts, and other scraps of junk, a Malawian teenager too poor to afford school tuition pulls off a miraculous feat of engineering: constructing a bare-bones power-generating windmill he hopes will pull his family out of famine and poverty. This SXSW Grand Jury Prize winner dives into the aftermath of his inspiring achievement, as this young hero becomes a symbol of hope for Africa watchers across the globe and is forced to cope with the increasingly heavy burden of his ingenious creation.

Producer: Ben Nabors

Directors of Photography: Michael Tyburski, Ben Nabors

Editors: Jonathan Oppenheim, Carlos Pavan
