A film telling the life story of Birmingham-based Malala Yousafzai will be screened tonight at the London Film Festival ahead of its release next month.
'He Named Me Malala' is about Malala's fight to win girls the right to an education in her native Pakistan, telling her story up until her attempted assassination by the Taliban.
She was flown to Britain and treated at Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital, making a full recovery.
She is now based in the city with her family and recently achieved As and A*s in her GCSEs.
The film will go on general release on the 6th November.
