Everyone was talking about He Named Me Malala – the inspirational story of Malala Yousafzai - when it was released in the cinema last year. If you missed it, now’s your chance to sort that out – it’s out now on DVD.

Malala 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 turned 18 in July 2015) 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 and in 2014, became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman) and producers Walter Parkes (Catch Me If You Can, The Slap) and Laurie MacDonald (The Kite Runner, Flight) 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.

He Named Me Malala is out now on Digital HD™ and DVD. £1 from each purchase will be donated to The Malala Fund. The organisation is dedicated to enabling girls to receive a full, high quality education to fulfil their potential towards being positive change-makers in society.
