My Son – Malawi Action Movie

Unlike Nigeria and its “Nollywood“, Malawi is not particularly well known for its homegrown cinema. This video may not change that view any time soon but it’s always great and refreshing to see something new in Malawi. The style is certainly different to what I’m normally used to but you can see the Jackie Chan influence at work.

My Son is co-directed by and stars Ernest Thamangiwa, who as it turns out, is a schoolmate of a friend of mine, Auden!

To watch this at a local “video shop”, a Malawian would pay around 50 MWK, which is less than £0.10.
