HE NAMED ME MALALA

DAVIS GUGGENHEIM

Young Ambassador for UNICEF, Minahil Sarfraz, will introduce this film.

This is an intimate portrait of Malala Yousafzai who was wounded when Taliban gunmen opened fire on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old teenager, who had been targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls’ education in her region, was shot in the head, sparking international media outrage. An educational activist in Pakistan, Yousafzai has since emerged as a leading campaigner for the rights of children worldwide and in December 2014, became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
