BEAUTIFULLY INSPIRING TRAILER FOR CHIWETEL EJIOFOR'S DIRECTORIAL DEBUT THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND IS HERE!

  IT'S NOT A DREAM, PAPA!   
'THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND' TRAILER IS HERE!
The film is out on Netflix worldwide from March
We've waited a long time for this beautiful trailer and now it is finally here! THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND will debut March 1st on Netflix around the world. Based on a true story told in William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer's book it stars little Maxwell Simba as a 13 year old boy in Malawi who helps his famine struck village by building a wind turbine after reading about them in a library book. Chiwetel Ejiofor did not just write the adaptation for the inspirational film, but also made this project his directorial debut in which he is also playing the lead role of the boy's father. The film will first air this month at Sundance Film Festival.

  1. What an amazing young man. Meanwhile in the US, we have kids running around acting like thugs not contributing anything to society but a mess of problems. These are the kinds of leaders we need to better our future. I am so ashamed of many of our youth in first world countries. I cannot stand Oprah and used to get pissed when someone would ask why she sends all of her money to Africa. She responded with something along the lines of, "well, if you ask a child in Africa what they would do if they had money, they would tell you get an education. If you ask and American kid what they would do with money, they'd buy an Xbox." While I still believe you should give back to the needy in the country who helped you rise to success, it's seeing children in poverty stricken countries who rise above their hardships to better their situations, just like the boy in this film, that make me understand her reasoning not to aid American families.

    1. too much everything spoils people. Especially today when the new ultraliberal society creates self-centred, overly self-assured princess and princesses out of their spawn. They forget that the point of growing up process means to prove you are worthy and entitled of everything by learning and developing yourself, not getting that on a silver plater. And nobody teaches kids respect anymore, either. Back in our days if your kid got a bad mark they'd get a few smacks on the bottom, today the parents go and beat the teacher. Not to mention they all send their kids to school dressed like lil' hoes and pimps.

    2. I laughed pretty hard at your hoes and pimps comment. Allison was taking a walk with 3 other girls in the neighborhood and those 3 girls all had midriff baring shirts on. Jason said, "Does Allison have any shirts like that? Or is she just not wearing one today?" Hell no she doesn't have any hoochie wear in her wardrobe. She tried putting one in the basked at the thrift store (geared towards teens, mind you) and I pointed at her and said "Put it back. NOW! You are not a hooker and you won't be dressing like one either." Got some ugly looks from the teens shopping there for that comment, but if they were my girls, they wouldn't be wearing that crap either.

    3. Princes and princesses... So true and annoying.

    4. it is all because people don't beat their kids these days as they very well should :) I live near a primary school and girls (lil girls mind you) all go to school in leggings and skin tight look at my but and thighs jeans! It is deeply inappropriate, disgusting and should be illegal. If I was still a teacher I would not let any kid enter my class dressed like that. Boys go to school all in track suits. It is also inappropriate. School should be a serious institution and you, as a parent, need to send your kids there dressed properly. They are not going out or to a sports club, dressed them as if they were going to the court! I also hate it when they send lil lil kids dressed in Disney from head to toe. School is not a marketing board for big labels and there should be no Helo Kitties, Spidermans or Frozen in there!

    5. I don't mind the little kids wearing the Disney wear. They're young for such a short time, let them look like kids (though I agree, they do look like walking advertisements). It's when the moms try to dress them like grown women, we have a problem. Most of the schools in our area are switching to mandatory school uniforms, so thankfully we're seeing less and less of the inappropriate dress at school anyway.

    6. they can be young at home. From the point of teacher that is not good because you need to show them from the very beginning that school is not a playground, dressing more seriously helps create the necessary atmosphere which we don't really have when they arrive dressed like they're going to a playroom. It's about the psychology of it that parents don't understand or just don't care about because they ain't the ones trying to discipline lil brats :)

  2. Heartwarming story! A kid using wind power, so that all people in his village may grow some crop.
    The thing is kids like that are a rarity in Africa (Malawi - the location of the movie).
    Talent and wll power has to come from within, not constantly depending on other countries for aid .

    1. The problem is that such countries have a very low production and probably have not much to export, and the little money they do have is wasted by corrupted government. But the west did ruin, exploit and butcher half of those African and Asian countries and deserves to send them help forever for their sins.
