Pakistani Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai and American singer Beyoncé will feature in a UN film together. It will air today at 9 pm on YouTube. United Nations came up with the idea of making a film that would discuss global issues. These global issues include the Covid-19 pandemic, racism, women’s rights, poverty, and many other issues that are crippling the world.
Notable personalities to feature in the film:
Multiple high rated personalities, including Burna Boy, Michelle Yeoh, and Forest Whitaker, will also take part in the film.
The name of the film is “Nations United: Urgent Solutions for Urgent Times”. It will be half an hour long. The director of the film, Richard Curtis, is an advocate for the United Nations. He advocates in dealing with massive problems of poverty, inequality, and conservation of the environment by 2030. American actress, Julia Roberts, will do a show on the film on the radio.
Malala’s History with the UN:
Secretary-General António Guterres appointed Malala as the United Nations Messenger of Peace in 2017. Her main goal is to raise awareness regarding girl’s education.
Last month, Malala announced the formation of her book club. She named it fearless. Malala’s book club has collaborated with a Austin-based book club, Literati.
Malala explained how she came up with the title:
“Fearless are those people who overcome these obstacles, who overcome these fears that surround them internally and externally. And they come forward with all that is in their heart — they tell the truth, they’re radical in expressing their feelings and they share actual true stories, they express their true feelings. That’s what fearless means to me.”
