The Malawi Boy Who Harnessed the Wind Heads to Netflix

The film is based on a bestselling memoir by a Malawian inventor, William Kamkwamba, who was thrown out of school when his family could no longer afford the fees. The film was shot by first-time director Chiwetel Ejiofor and is set to be released on Netflix in 2019.

Oscar-nominated Ejiofor plays the father of 13-year-old, self-educated inventor Kamkwamba, played by newcomer Maxwell Simba, as his family and community faces famine.
