I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced is a 2014 Yemeni drama film directed by Khadija al-Salami. It was selected as the Yemeni entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 89th Academy Awards, the first time that Yemen had submitted a film for consideration. However, it was not nominated.[3][4] The film is based on the story of Nujood Ali, who sought divorce from her abusive husband at age 10.


Nojoom, a ten year old Jemenite girl, asks a judge in Sana'a to grant her a divorce from a horrible marriage after she was married away to prevent a public scandal following the rape of her sister.
