    Movie at the Flicks – “He Named Me Malala”

    October 11, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


    Join your friends at the Flicks for the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights $10 benefit showing of “He Named Me Malala.”Malala

    Sponsored by Mill Park Publishing, the benefit showing of “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 turned 18 in 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. 

    Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (“An Inconvenient Truth,” “Waiting for Superman”) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. 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. 

    “One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” – Malala

    Tickets are available at the Flicks.
