"I'm not a lone voice, I am many. And our voices are our most powerful weapons." If you haven't seen this trailer yet, it really should be a must watch. Fox Searchlight has debuted their official US trailer for Davis Guggenheim's new documentary titled He Named Me Malala, about the amazing Malala Yousafzai, an inspirational young girl who survived being shot by the Taliban and has since united the world in an attempt to bring education to everyone. This doc profiles her life story, and specifically Malala's connection to her family and her father Zia. Together they are all committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. "One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world." Indeed. Prepare to be moved. Enjoy!

He Named Me Malala Documentary Poster

Directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for "Superman"), the film shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education worldwide. 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 (she turns 18 this July) 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. Fox Searchlight will debut the doc He Named Me Malala in select theaters starting October 2nd this fall.

I read about this girl awhile back. I believe she received a nobel prize. Incredible person and story.

Guggenheim can't half tell a story. What an incredible human being Malala is.

I remember her being brought to Britain to be treated, she was used as propaganda for the war at any given occasion. But the right to education is an incredibly important one. Often where I live, parents treat education like it's some sort of joke, so their children in turn also seem uninterested. Occasionally in classes I've taught, I bring up the Malala case, saying that on the whole where we live, children can be educated for free, but in other parts of the world, they are murdered for trying to learn how to read. First world problems I guess.
