Aisha's Song

Synopsis

Partially blinded by an unknown illness aged 4 and sent out to work on the tough streets of Kano in Nigeria aged 9, Aisha Sani Abdullahi's life chances were not great. However, a chance meeting sent Aisha's life in a completely different direction. Aisha's Song is an energetic and beautifully shot 16mm documentary that uses the sounds of street life in Kano in order to create a vibrant and organic soundscape. Musically lush and uplifting, the film is a positive story of female empowerment from a part of the world where women are all too often overlooked. http://www.grainmedia.co.uk
