Emma Watson & Malala – FULL TRANSCRIPT:

Emma Watson:

Hello everyone. I’m Emma Watson. I’m delighted to be welcoming you all to the opening of the, Into Film Festival. It’s an honor to be joined by Malala Yousafzai. Hello, Malala.

Malala Yousafzai:

Hello.

Emma Watson:

First, I just wanted to say how wonderful I thought the film was and that you’re just my absolute hero. So, this is…

Malala Yousafzai:

It’s my great honor to see you as well.

Emma Watson:

Ah, that’s really kind. Thank you.

Emma Watson:

I think the best part of the film for me was that you got to see what obviously made you so extraordinary, but more importantly, ordinary, which shows that anyone can encourage change. And I just thought that was a wonderful message from the film. Do you have a sense of a tangible goal that you would like the Malala fund to reach within your lifetime?

Malala Yousafzai:

So, it’s my simple dream and very straightforward. I want to see every child to get quality education. And in order to make sure that their dream comes true, we have to work hard, and we have to take action. And that’s why through the Malala fund, we are working each and every day and now the sustainable development goals are going to be set up. So, we are raising our voice saying that not just primary education should be focused on, but both primary and secondary education should be available to every child. And this has been my mission and I’ll make it come true. I’ll try my best.

Emma Watson:

How does it feel to have your story shown on film and screen to thousands of young people today as part of the Into Film festival?

Malala Yousafzai:

It’s quite interesting, but I don’t like seeing myself on TV, or I can’t even hear my voice. So, but once the film was made and I watched it, it really inspired me the way Davis Guggenheim, the director of the film has delivered our story through animation and spread the message of education across the world. And it was his commitment to this call that led to this, the making of this movie. And it covers, as you have seen it, it covers like the family story and how we stood up for the right to education at that hard time of terrorism in SWAT Valley.

So, hopefully the message will spread, and it will inspire more people to come together and join the campaign that we are having through the Malala fund, hashtag with Malala and to come together and do something. It’s not just that you watch the film, but you do something. And I want this movie not just to be a movie, but a movement.

Emma Watson:

That’s amazing. And I thought that the animation in the film was so beautiful and I loved the mythology behind it. And it just really, it was so beautifully done and so well told. And I completely agree with you. I think it’s great that people are watching the film and it’s wonderful, but it’s great that you want people to really do something and take action as well, and that this is about a movement, not just a film. I think it’s amazing that it’s going so far beyond that.

Apart of the film that really touched me, it was how big of a role, you know, your father has played in your life and in the film. How would you respond to anyone who said that, you know, men can’t be feminists or shouldn’t be campaigning for girl’s rights?
