WHAT: Into Film is proud to present a free educational screening of He Named Me Malala as part of the Spring Screenings: Changing Times programme. At a time of remarkable change around attitudes towards the environment, technology, politics, and identity, particularly for young people, this film will open up discussion around some of these themes, utilising the remarkable power of cinema to deepen learning as well as provoke conversation and debate. The screening will be preceded by a short compilation of archive film on the theme, special schools' edit provided by Yorkshire Film Archive and will be followed by a talk.

About the talk:

A representative from ActionAid will take part in a post-screening talk where they'll explore themes raised in the film.

Film title

He Named Me Malala


In 2012, 15 year-old Malala Yousafzai was targeted by Taliban assassins after daring to speak out against the closing of schools to girls in her area. Miraculously surviving a gunshot to the head, Malala has used her horrific experience to promote peace and advocate for access to education, especially for girls who are at risk of being denied this right. With intimate footage filmed during 18 months with Malala and her family, this documentary from Oscar-winning director David Guggenheim charts her rise to prominence on the international stage, the reprisals from the Taliban leading to her assassination attempt, and her defiant recovery.

Brief bloody images.
