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

I have heard a bit about this inspirational girl in the news, but have not seen the documentary yet.  It amazes me the courage that this teenager had in the face of such a scary situation!  I am looking forward to finding out more about how she is making a difference for so many girls in her country and around the world.


About the Movie:  

Rated PG-13 for thematic elements involving disturbing images and threats

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.

This is one documentary you will not want to miss.   Don't forget to set your DVR's!
