He Named Me Malala: Global Broadcast On February 29th!
This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for 20th Century Fox. I received information to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I have heard so much about this courageous girl on the news. I unfortunately have not seen the documentary yet. Fortunately for all He Named Me Malala, the story of young Nobel Peace Prize winner Laureate Malala Yousafzai, will premiere commercial-free on Monday February 29 on the National Geographic channel at 8:00 pm ET/7:00 pm CT Great right!
Let me tell you a bit about the movie.
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 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.
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.
I have heard that this is a touching, awe-inspiring and incredible documentary! One that you MUST NOT miss!
