Malala: A Girl from Paradise (Opening Film)
Director: Mohsin Abbas/Pakistan-Canada/2013/60 min/In English and Urdu with Chinese and English subtitles
Best for: Secondary Students

Malala Yousafzai once said,“Education is our basic right”. A Taliban gunshot in October 2012 has turned the 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai into a symbol of hope for the millions of girls in Pakistan who are illiterate and have little chance of an education. Mohsin Abbas spent four months in Pakistan to interview friends and family of Malala and produced the first documentary about this remarkably courageous teenager who stood up against the Taliban to demand her right to an education.

Award: Best documentary award for New Jersey International Film Festival 2014, US.
