‘He Named Me Malala’ Trailer Gives Intimate Portrait of World’s Youngest Nobel Peace Prize Winner (Video)

Malala Yousafzai continues to speak out for women around the globe in latest documentary from director Davis Guggenheim

Audiences are given an intimate look into Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai’s life in the first trailer for director Davis Guggenheim‘s latest documentary, “He Named Me Malala.”

The Oscar-winning director of “An Inconvenient Truth” spent 18 months with Yousafzai to film the upcoming Fox Searchlight release spotlighting the educational activist who was wounded when a Taliban gunman attempted to assassinate her aboard a school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley in 2012.

In 2014, she became the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate when she was named co-recipient of the award at just 17.

Guggenheim’s documentary examines the events leading up to the attack that made Yousafzai an international icon for women’s rights, and follows her on a media tour after her recovery.

“He Named Me Malala” hits theaters in the U.S. on Oct. 2.
