Into Film Festival opening Q&A

They are not your usual PYTS. Actor Emma Watson may be loved for her roles in cinema, but the 25-year-old actress is also known for her work for gender equality as a UN ambassador. The actress, recently, got the opportunity to interview Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai at the Into Film Festival in UK which screened Davis Guggenheim directed documentary 'He Named Me Malala'. The two young girls, activists and orators, spoke about the film and how Malala with her NGO 'Malala Fund' wants every child to not only get primary but also secondary education.

Through the film, Malala, stated she aims to make more and more people aware of the movement that the organisation has started. "I want the film to be a movement for change," said the 18-year-old. Yousafzai also credited Watson's speech at the UN calling gender equality and stated that how her father stood for women's rights and he was a feminist and added, "I am a feminist. Everyone should be a feminist because it is the other word for equality".
