Exclusive: Get Your First Look at "He Named Me Malala"


Aug 27, 2015

Get an exclusive first look at the powerful new documentary about Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai.

"He Named Me Malala" is an intimate portrait of Malala, 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 was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls' education. 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.

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl's life — from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.


"One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world." –Malala
