He Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of this extraordinary young woman who, at 15, was targeted by the Taliban in her native Swat Valley, Pakistan, and was severely wounded by gunshot as she returned home on a school bus. The documentary offers a look into Malala’s life both before and after the attack. She was 15 at the time of the incident, when she was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education. The shooting sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. Malala miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
