The story you must know: He Named Me Malala

He Named Me Malala is a documentary directed by Davis Guggenheim revolving around the story of Malala Yousafzai who speaks for the rights of educations for females. Malala is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate who was shot by the taliban while going to school but miraculously survived. Since then she has worked for the education of females in Pakistan and has received a lot of international attention which led to Pakistan's situation being highlighted globally.

The documentary narrates her life story and her struggle to improve the conditions of education system in conflict ridden zones in Pakistan with Swat Valley being the main focus. I would high recommend this documentary since it gives you a visual insight about the current situation in conflict ridden zones and how some personalities are trying to work for the betterment of education sector there. It's truly an inspiring story!
