He Named Me Malala will soon be available via digital streaming thanks to a new deal with Hulu.
The documentary will be available on Hulu’s subscription VOD service this summer.
He Named Me Malala” was released theatrically by Fox Searchlight Pictures last fall, in association with Image Nation Abu Dhabi and Participant Media, with National Geographic Channel. The film is produced by Walter Parkes, Laurie MacDonald and Davis Guggenheim. Executive producers are Mohamed Al Mubarak and Michael Garin from Image Nation Abu Dhabi, Jeff Skoll from Participant Media and Shannon Dill.
The film is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.
The then 15-year old (she turned 18 this 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.
