Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was shot by the Taliban last year for demanding education for girls, will be the subject of a documentary film.

Davis Guggenheim, who won an Oscar for environmental documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" in 2006, will direct the yet-to-be-titled documentary, which is slated to be released in late 2014.

Producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald said the film will follow Yousafzai as she campaigns for the right of children to education, Dawn News has reported.

According to the report, the film will be funded by Image Nation Abu Dhabi, a subsidiary of government-owned Abu Dhabi Media.
