The Boy Who Harnessed Wind is an inspiring story of a boy who brought Solar Energy to the fore in his neighbourhood in Malawi. The boy, in 2007, built a wind turbine and helped power electrical appliances in his house, and later built a solar power pump that supplied the first drinking water to his village. William went on to build two other wind turbines in his village.
The trailer promises an emotional, intriguing deep dive into the life and times of the boy as well as the world of Malawi. The film stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Noma Dumezweni, Joseph Marcell and Aisaa Maiga. The Netflix Original will premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Chiwetel is also directing the film, and Andrea Calderwood and Gail Egan direct this screenplay written by Chiwetel.
