A former child bride from Yemen is bringing the plight of these young girls to the big screen.

Khadija al-Salami is the director of 'I am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced.'

The film is based on the true story of a girl who was forced to marry a man in his 30s.

Isabelle Dupuis caught up with the filmmaker ahead of a screening at UN headquarters this Thursday.

Ms al-Salami explains why this was a story that she had to tell.
