Documentary on Malala to be Screened at MU

The 90-minute documentary based on the youngest Nobel peace prize winner, Malala Yousufzai who came out of the cocoon and took a bold step against Taliban will be screened at the Mumbai University on November 7.

Snehalaya, an Ahmednagar-based institution for marginalised women and children, along with the first crowd-funding community, Global Giving will screen the documentary — He named me Malala.

It was directed by Davis Guggenheim, who takes a look at the events leading up to Taliban’s attack on Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai for standing up for girls’ rights for education, followed by the aftermath, and the legendary speech at the United Nations. While the documentary was first screened at one of the film festivals of US, other countries including India will get to see it onNovember 7.

“The aim is to encourage girls in the age group of 13-23 to understand the challenges that Malala faced before ‘her voice’ could be heard,” says Miranda Hudson to media, CEO of Friends of Snehalaya in the UK, who arrived in Ahmednagar on Tuesday.

Around 7,000 schoolgirls are going to participate at the screening where they will also get an opportunity to voice their concerns over the challenges faced by women every day.

State Education Minister Vinod Tawade along with 20 NGOs will also be present.

Girish Kulkarni, founder of Snehalaya, Ahmednagar, said the film will be screened at Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and New Delhi.
