About this submission

Away from the responsibilities of familial life, Maryam hires 20-year-old sex worker Aisha to keep her company for the night. Kasbi is a propulsive middle-age coming-of-age short film centring true human connection amid the complexities of midlife anxiety. Shot primarily in close-ups, Kasbi captures the intimacy of feeling seen.
