Mondays are rubbish aren't they? A whole wide week stretching in front of you with nothing but doom and gloom to come.

How's about we make your Monday a little bit better then? Fancy coming down to a screening of the excellent documentary film He Named Me Malala all about (yep, you guessed it) Malala Yousafzai, the brave teenager who took on the Taliban in her homeland of Pakistan, was shot for her efforts, and lived to tell the tale.


If you haven't seen it yet, you really should. Not only is being in the presence of Malala an absolute pleasure; she's still a teenager who playfights with her brothers and fancies boys, her story is told against the backdrop of beautiful animated illustrations and in time with the tale of the warrior Malalai, a Pakistani heroine who spurred her countrymen on to defeat the British when they thought they were finished. She too, was shot for her heroism.

Anyway - back to our original message; you should watch it. And, what's handy is that we're having a screening of it to celebrate the DVD and Digital HD release. On Monday 29th of February, the nice people at Fox Home Entertainment are hosting a Debrief screening of the film at their cinema room (31-32 Soho Square) at 6:30PM. We'll be having drinks and nibbles first, followed by the screening at 7PM with (drum roll please) a introduction from a representative of The Malala Fund (which if you don't know, aims to get girls the world over access to safe education. Read more about their work here.)

We've got 35 pairs of tickets to give away (for free - yay). So, if you want to come just fill your details in below and we'll select winners at random and notify you by Thursday 25th February.

HE NAMED ME MALALA will be released on Digital HD™ and DVD on 29th February from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
