Don't miss this inspiring trailer of He Named Me Malala
The trailer of the documentary on Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai has been released on official Facebook page of Malala Fund.
Titled He Named Me Malala, the documentary offers a look into Malala's life both before and following the attack. Fifteen at the time of the incident, she was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls' education.
Malala was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot while she was returning home on her school bus in Pakistan's Swat Valley.
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim examines how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide.
In the trailer, when asked who she would have been if she was just an ordinary girl from the Swat Valley in Pakistan, Malala replies: "I am still an ordinary girl, but if I had an ordinary father and an ordinary mother, then I would have two children now."
Referring to the warrior woman she was named after, Malala smiles. "My father gave me the name Malalai," she says. "He did not make me Malalai."
National Geographic Channel has joined forces with Fox Searchlight Pictures for the global theatrical release of the film. The film will release on October 2nd in 171 countries and 45 languages.
