Adam Ellick: Filmmaker behind "Class Dismissed: Malala’s Story"

Ellick’s riveting programs offer many new revelations into the strength, struggles and spirit of humanity.

Newton, MA (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

Malala Yousafzai has become a worldwide symbol for educational equality and the fight against oppression. Malala’s commitment to pursue her education in the Taliban controlled area of Pakistan’s Swat Valley became the inspiration behind New York Times journalist Adam Ellick’s documentary, Class Dismissed: Malala’s Story. In 2009, Ellick became one of the only Westerners to build a close bond with Malala and her family as he created his groundbreaking film about a young girl’s struggle to attend school.

Now, Ellick is sharing his intimate story of Malala and her struggle through a series of exclusive speaking engagements with American Program Bureau. A true modern day journalist, Ellick uses his knowledge and creative reporting to bring to life some of today’s most talked about world events. Offering in-depth perspectives alongside stimulating multimedia presentations, Ellick captivates audiences as he speaks candidly about his six month journey with Malala, while touching upon the plight of oppressed peoples worldwide and the future of news reporting.

Ellick’s riveting programs offer many new revelations into the strength, struggles and spirit of humanity. His dynamic delivery, inspirational voice and ability to go where few have been make him a popular speaker for educational organizations, women’s rights associations and other groups looking for stories of perseverance and triumph.
