Malala made headlines across the world after surviving being shot in the face by members of the Taliban after she addressed why she, and girls in general, should be granted access to the same education as boys. Since surviving the ordeal of potentially losing her life, Malala has only continued fighting harder for women’s rights, specifically focussing on ensuring females are given the opportunity to receive education — she has set up a Malala Fund to help her cause. He Named Me Malala explores the activities Malala endures on a daily basis; from meeting world leaders to having to go home to complete her homework. She’s an extraordinary 18-year-old raised by a father who has just as many interesting stories to share in this film. There’s a cover charge of RM10 to be paid at the door, the proceeds from this will be given to the United Nations Girl Up Fund for girls in need.
