"He Named Me Malala" is an excellent story about not only a girl and her experience ...
Verified purchase
I first watched "He Named Me Malala" while on an international flight- I was impressed that the airline carrier had such an interesting and meaningful film. "He Named Me Malala" is an excellent story about not only a girl and her experience with a disgruntled force (the Taliban), but the story of a motivated girl and her family. Malala is someone who was not motivated by being shot in the head. She was motivated to change global education before there attempted assassination and was shot as a result of being outspoken. I showed this video in my class as an alternative to reading a biography about Malala and the students enjoyed the way that the directors crossed between documentary footage and interviews and the cartoon representations of the stories she and her family told. This movie is suitable for viewers of all ages and is truly inspirational for anybody who wants to make a change in the world. Malala is willing to die for her cause and that still didn't stop her from pressing forward in her fight. I highly recommend this film.

Malala is the voice of generations of women who have overcome great adversity to acquire education across the globe. It is also the story of what a Father with a vision of equality for his daughters can accomplish against all odds.

Life changing for my students!

Life changing for my students! As a teacher I value books that change the perspectives of my students. Having my students eyes opened to increase their understanding of another culture as they make connections to their own lives has been truly rewarding. My students where uniforms daily to school. They really hate them. Reading about the uniform hanging on the back of her door like it was a prom dress made my students consider their experiences in a different way.

Excellent, informative
Verified purchase
Excellent, informative, and very well written. Malaga is quite an impressive young lady. This is not just a story about what happened to her, it is a comprehensive eye-opening look into the affect of the Taliban on Pakistani culture which will open your heart and mind and give you a whole new outlook on how people on the other side of the world live and the effects 9/11 had on them. We are not the only ones to suffer from the attacks. Highly recommended reading.

Great documentary!

I loved how well out together this documentary was. I showed it as a culminating activity for our unit on the book I am Malala. The animation. That went along with the story was very creative! Definitely would recommend.

And the book "I am Malala" is great to! Watch the documentary

Remarkable woman! And the book "I am Malala" is great to! Watch the documentary. Is it perfect? No...I'd say the way it is done is about an 8 out of 10, so pretty damn close in my opinion. But the story of Malala is one that every person on this earth needs to hear-especially her message of education rights for women. She is a shining example of courage! I just pray that nothing else bad happens to her. To many bad things happen to children in this world.

I think this was a wonderful story of the girl who stood up for herself and women of all races and backgrounds. I just wished that she didn't have to suffer so greatly for the lesson she taught us all. This was a courageous and heartwarming story of life after tragedy and the strong will to go on and fight for whats right.
