Review: He Named Me Malala

The documentary tells the story of Pakistani teenager, Malala Yousafzai, who, after surviving a gunshot from the Taliban, emerged determined to provide education to children all over the world. It also makes the audience reflect on the western privilege of education.

Words: Alina Kay, Subeditor: Jason John

★★★★★★★★☆☆

Director Davis Guggenheim, who won an Academy Award for An Inconvenient Truth, tells the astonishing story of a young Pakistani girl’s life, but also contextualises the journey of how this ordinary girl became the role model, activist and inspiration she is today.
