ABOUT THE FILM

Partially blinded by an unknown illness at age 4 and sent out to work on the tough streets of Kano in Nigeria at age 9, Aisha Sani Abdullahi’s chances in life were not great. However, a chance meeting with a woman sent Aisha’s life in a completely different direction.

AISHA’S SONG is an energetic and beautifully shot 16mm documentary that uses the sounds surrounding Aisha in order to create a vibrant, exciting, and organic soundscape.

Elegant and musically lush, the film is an uplifting story of female empowerment from a part of the world where women are all too often overlooked.
