Directed by Davis Guggenheim and set to come out on October 2, 2015, He Named Me Malala tells the story of Malala Yousafzai, a then fifteen-year-old girl shot by the Taliban for speaking out for girl’s education and going to school. Against all odds, she lived. She has continued to speak for girls’ education. In 2014 she won the Nobel Peace Prize for her fight for education for everyone.
Synopsis for He Named Me Malala
He Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old (she turned 18 this July) was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
