Synopsis
Raha’s special day comes to a halt when her anxiety (un)expectedly takes center stage.
Neefso (Breathe) is a micro-short about the everyday coping mechanisms of managing anxiety through the lens of a young Black Muslim woman. This film not only highlights unpredictable nature of anxiety but also the love and support necessary to survive and thrive.

Bio: Aisha Jama
Aisha Jama is filmmaker who has chosen moving images to communicate her understanding of the world around her while she’s still present in it. She is dedicated to creating images and amplifying stories that examine our interiority and offer reprieve.
