“This incredible and critically acclaimed film left movie audiences applauding this young woman’s journey and left them wanting to make a difference. And now, in continuation of our partnership with Fox Searchlight Pictures, we are bringing this important film to an even larger audience with the exclusive global broadcast television premiere,” said Courteney Monroe, CEO, National Geographic Global Networks. “We are extremely proud and honored to have dedicated National Geographic’s collective resources to bring awareness of Malala’s advocacy for girls’ education to our global audience.”
The documentary offers a look into Malala’s life both before and after the attack. She was 15 at the time of the incident, when she was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education. The shooting sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. Malala miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (“An Inconvenient Truth,” “Waiting for Superman”) examines how Malala, her father, Zia, and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film delivers 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 United Nations to joking around at home with her parents and brothers.
