The Gorge Technology Alliance and Gorge Women in STEM are hosting a drive-in screening of He Named Me Malala.
The film presents the young Pakistani female activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, who has spoken out for the rights of girls, especially the right to education since she was very young. The film also recounts how she miraculously survived and has become even more eloquent in her quest after being hunted down and shot by a Taliban gunman as part of the organization’s violent opposition to girls’ education in the Swat Valley in Pakistan. The title refers to the Afghani folk hero Malalai of Maiwand, after whom her father named her.
The event opens at 6:00 pm and the film begins at 6:30 pm. Traditional movie concessions as well gourmet small plates and wine will be available for purchase.
Tickets are limited and must be reserved in advance.
