THE BOY WHO FLIES, with Filmmaker Q & A
Following a dream, Canadian paraglider pilot Benjamin Jordan travels to Malawi to teach children the joys of kite flying. There he meets Godfrey, a young man who has always dreamt of flying though has never had the means.

The odd pair tour the country on bikes, building kites with youth while motivating them to follow their dreams, no matter the challenge. They are destined for Malawi's highest peak, where after weeks of ground training, the two will attempt to fly down and make Godfrey the first Malawian paraglider pilot.

Observing himself through the eyes of the Malawians, Jordan must come to grips with truths about who he is as a westerner while; Godfrey is required to reach deeper into his faith than ever before as he prepares to leap off a mountain and trust that the paraglider he's been carrying--will carry him in return.

Shining a new light on Malawian culture and lifestyle, "The Boy Who Flies" dives deep into the unique perspectives of both characters as they confront and overcome the challenges on their journey, each in their own unique way.
