A look at the events leading up to the Talibans’ attack on the young Pakistani school girl, Malala Yousafzai, for speaking out on girls’ education and the aftermath, including her speech to the United Nations.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
'One child, one teacher, one book, one pen...can change the world'. Guggenheim's film captures young Malala Yousafzai not just for the activist she has become but the teenage girl striving to be normal as well and thus give a very humanistic portrayal to a political icon. The animation design by Jason Carpenter is excellent in portraying history not captured by camera. Education is a fundamental right and is power.
A wonderful activist whose profound testimony is worthy of this documentary for an educational target audience. The direction is functional, rightfully playing second fiddle to its subject: Malala Yousafzai.
Interesante conocer su historia, pero siento que falto mostrar más...sé que es un documental de ella, pero siento que abarca demasiado en el atentado, obviamente es el actor más fuerte que se pueda esperar en cualquier vida, pero quede con gusto a poco...más que nada siento que hay personas anónimas que hacen maravillas para tratar de hacer un mejor mundo, pero mientras no les ocurra nada impactante no son noticias.
Malala savagely shot by the Taliban but her body and spirit were saved allowing her to campaign for the education of girls. The bullet could not silence her. She is a fearless feminist who fights for the 66m girls across the world with no education. I recall working in Swat many years ago and marvelled at these beautiful people, the apricot groves, the colours and the music. A beautiful film from David Guggenheim.
Malala Yousafzai is a precious and steadfast human being. Her resolve despite everything she's been through is something we can all aspire to. I'd give her as a person 5 stars, but this documentary gets 3 for its 'just okay' telling of her story.
