I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced

18 festival1
A beautiful plea for all young girls forced into womanhood too soon and their right to a life on their own terms.

Directed by Yemen’s first female filmmaker and producer, I am Nojoom tells the story of a 10 year old girl who is forced into a marriage with a 30 year old man. The arrangement is considered legitimate and acceptable to all, except Nojoom.

Q&A with director Khadija Al-Salami and led by Ashvin Devasundaram, Researcher in Cultural Studies and Visual Arts.

Supported by Women’s India Association
