Él me llamó Malala – Compromiso

Allá por el año 1880, en pleno asedio por parte de los colonialistas británicos en tierras afganas, Malalai de Maiwand, una adolescente, irrumpió en el campo de batalla para socorrer a los heridos y animar a los combatientes del pueblo pastún. En un momento delicado, cuando todo parecía estar perdido, Malalai cogió una bandera y comenzó a correr vociferando para alentar a sus compañeros. Los soldados afganos lograron vencer gracias a la joven, pero ésta fue alcanzada por las balas y murió en pleno campo de batalla. Así se forjó la leyenda de Malalai de Maiwand, la mayor heroína de la historia de Afganistán.

Malalá 2

Más de doscientos años después Ziauddin Yousafzai, un profesor paquistaní comprometido social y políticamente, le dio el nombre de Malalá a su primógenita, podría decirse que augurando el futuro de la joven. Siguiendo ese previsible camino, el que seguramente su padre esperaba, Malalá luchó activamente en su adolescencia por el derecho de la mujer a la educación. En 2012, recibió un disparo en la cabeza por parte de los talibaneses cuando volvía a casa en el autobús escolar, dejando su vida pendiendo de un hilo al quedar en coma. Malalá consiguió escapar de esa situación y ahora vive felizmente junto a su familia en Birmingham. Y esa es la historia que Davis Guggenheim, ganador de un Óscar por el documental Una verdad incómoda, nos quiere contar en su nuevo documental, Él me llamó Malalá.

La mayor parte del metraje se centra en el día a día de Malalá y su familia, que viven plácidamente mientras ésta compagina sus estudios -a pesar de las dificultades de adaptación que aún tiene- con el activismo y los diferentes actos que tiene en diferentes puntos del planeta. Aun siendo amenazada de muerte en caso de volver a pisar su país, Malalá no cesa en su lucha. Además de todo el sensacional trabajo a la hora de acercarse a la familia, el director estadounidense echa mano de imágenes de archivo e introduce algunas escenas de animación que aportan un toque mágico que se agradece. Los momentos más bellos de la cinta llegan con esta animación artesanal de Jason Carpenter, que narra de manera bellísima algunos pasajes de la vida de la joven y la funde con la historia de la heroína que le dio nombre.

Malalá 3

Sin embargo, y a pesar de tener algunos momentos muy intensos y cargados de interés, Él me llamó Malalá me parece que peca de bienintencionado, evitando profundizar en algunos temas espinosos y excediéndose en mostrar sucesos irrelevantes, anécdotas de la relación entre la joven y su padre. Además, conforme el final se aproxima, el documental empieza a tomar demasiadas similitudes con un anuncio publicitario. Cuando Malalá gana por fin el Premio Nobel de la Paz en 2014, y algunos mensajes desconcertantes suceden al vídeo original, me percato de que la intención de Guggenheim era más la de captar seguidores para una ONG que la de concienciar y transmitir una serie de hechos que inviten a la reflexión. Y eso explica un discutible uso de la música durante todo el metraje, algo que hasta ese momento simplemente me parecía un pequeño error.

Él me llamó Malalá consigue, aun siendo un trabajo artísticamente pobre -a excepción de su animación- y reprochable en su vertiente documental, convertirse en una película recomendable. Pero me quedo con la sensación de que Guggenheim nos podría haber empapado más de las verdaderas ideas de la protagonista y de los conflictos en los que interviene, relegando a un segundo plano la cotidianidad de una familia como cualquier otra. No sé si es una decepción o no, pero lo cierto es que podría haber dado mucho más de sí.
