At Green Initiatives' 126th film screening and our Womens' Day special event, we screen He Named Me Malala, a 2015 American documentary film that presents the young Pakistani female activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, who has spoken out for the rights of girls, especially the right to education, since she was very young. This event is made possible through the support of the Royal Norwegian Consulate General in Shanghai.
ABOUT THE FILM
A documentary directed by Davis Guggenheim, that presents the young Pakistani female activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Malala Yousafzai, who has spoken out for the rights of girls, especially the right to education, since she was very young.
The film is based on the book, I Am Malala, that tells the tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.
