Sundance Institute Free Summer Screening: The Boy who Harnessed the Wind

Young William Kamkwamba lives with his family in rural Malawi, where he shows great aptitude for his studies. But when famine strikes the village, William has to drop out of school when his father (Chiwetel Ejiofor) can no longer afford the fees. Determined, William sneaks into the school library to research—and soon conspires to build a windmill pump to irrigate the land. Caught between his father’s close-minded skepticism and the difficulty of creating a machine out of bicycle parts and scrap materials, William races against the clock to fight for his community’s survival.

Come at 7:30 p.m. and bring your old conventional lightbulbs: Summit Community Power Works will be hosting a Light Swap where you can switch in (up to 10 of) your old lightbulbs for energy- and money-saving LED lightbulbs—for free. There will also be games and a raffle drawing for prizes.
