The official trailer has been released for a documentary about the life of Malala Yousafzai: He Named Me Malala.

HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old (she turns 18 this July) was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

Following Malala’s speech to the United Nations, in 2014, Malala became the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

The film is directed by Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) and takes an intimate look at Malala’s family life.

The official synopsis says:

“The film gives us 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 UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.”

The film will be released in October. Here’s the trailer.
