I am Nojoom

“I am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced” by Khadija Al-Salami

Wednesday, 9 March 2016, 18:30

Runtime: 96′

In 2009, the story of Yemeni teenager Nojoom Ali’s bid to legally extricate herself from an abusive, arranged marriage to a much older man (which took place when she was just 10 years old) made headlines. Khadija Al-Salami has beautifully adapted the subsequent bestseller into an emphatic drama that features a wonderful performance from Reham Mohammed as the young Ali, and a striking backdrop of Yemen’s astonishing mountain villages and ancient “skyscrapers.”

The film is in Arabic with English subtitles and has a run time of 96 minutes.
