THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind
—based on a true African family story—quickly becomes a respectful ode to the human spirit. The solid storyline completes itself with a well-written script and event-filled scenes that are particularly striking due to the African setting and the struggle for the simplest human needs. Excellent child/adult share film with strong value system included for free.
