October 22 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Lifetime Learning presents a free showing of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind in the Barnhill Center at the Historic Simon Theater, downtown Brenham. The film which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2019 is based on the true story of William Kamkwamba who built a windmill from scrap to bring electricity and water to his village in Malawi. The book, co-authored by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer, is this year’s Washington County READ selection. The film is written and directed by Academy Award nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor (Twelve Years a Slave, Amistad). Ejiofor plays William’s father and thirteen year-old Kenyan actor Maxwell Simbe plays William.
