The global broadcast of the film He Named Me Malala is tonight, February 29th, at 8pm EST/7pm CST. (It will also be in theaters everywhere this October). Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai and her father were targeted by the Taliban for advocating for girls’ education, and Malala was severely wounded by a gunshot while on her school bus returning home. Malala survived the attack and co-founded the Malala Fund, where she’s a leading campaigner for girls’ global education.
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) 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.
