He Named Me Malala (ATOM study guide)

SKU: SG1154

    'There is a moment when you have to choose whether to be silent or stand up.' – Malala Yousafzai

    He Named Me Malala is a feature documentary directed by David Guggenheim. The documentary is a portrait of Malala Yousafzai, who was wounded when a Taliban gunman boarded her school bus in Pakistan's Swat Valley on 9 October 2012 and opened fire. The then fifteen-year-old teenager, who had been targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls' education, was shot in the face. No-one expected her to survive.

    The documentary follows the story of her recovery. Now living with her family in Birmingham, England, Malala has emerged as a leading campaigner for the rights of children worldwide and in December 2014 became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
