The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind William Kamkwamba was born in the country of Malawi, in Africa. When he was fourteen years old, a terrible drought hit the village where he lived. People had nothing to eat. Being an excellent student and very fond of physics, William decides to save his native village from starvation. In the library he finds books on physics. After studying the books, he got an idea to build a wind generator, to provide electricity to his family.

World-premiering at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival earlier this evening, the Oscar-nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor’s skilled directorial debut is as inspiring and morally upright as you’d expect from a film with such rousing source material drawn from real life.

While thoroughly traditional with familiar beats of an exceptional child, his disapproving father and an eventual resolution that unites generations, Ejiofor’s movie eloquently harnesses all these customary elements and yields them into an irresistible family film that plays like a brand-new “October Sky” with an urgent human-interest dimension at its heart.
