We were excited to find out that BASE friend and collaborator Ben Nabors won the grand jury prize for best documentary film at SXSW in Austin, Texas last week!

Ben spent the last five years working on a film about William Kamkwamba, a Malawian teenager who builds a windmill using scrap materials to provide power for his subsistence farmer family. But Ben’s documentary isn’t about William’s windmill, but the effect that the windmill has on William’s life after as his story transforms him into a globally recognized media darling.
Congratulations Ben!
And be sure to check out the trailer below,as well as his production company group theory
