He Named Me Malala DVD Review
I encourage you to watch this movie with your family. It will broadcast on the National Geographic Channel Monday, February 29th at 8 pm est/7 pm cst. It is a wonderful movie about a girl who just wanted an education and advocate for girl’s education. This is a documentary that is great for the whole family to watch. My family and I recently sat down to watch it. My children learned about what happened to Malala and why. We explained to them the importance for an Education. They enjoyed watching it and it encouraged them to ask us more questions about an education and even furthering theirs.

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.
