Sky Cinema has a good track record of releasing movies under its Sky Original Films banner. And ahead of its European Premiere at the London Film Festival on October 6th, the official trailer for their upcoming film ‘Aisha’ has been launched. Letitia Wright stars as the title character with actor Josh O’Conner as Conor Healy. The film has been described as immensely moving and powerful as it tells the tale of a young Nigerian woman seeking asylum in Ireland. The film will be in cinemas and on Sky Cinema on November 17th. Let’s take a look at the trailer:
Written and directed by Frank Berry, Aisha (Wright), a young Nigerian woman seeking asylum in Ireland, is floundering in a maze of social services and bureaucracy. Alone and unwilling to sacrifice her dignity to satisfy the demands of the authorities, she finds an ally in Conor (O’Connor), an employee at her residence home, a local young man with a troubled past of his own. Together they struggle to maintain their tender friendship in the face of Aisha’s increasingly dire predicament and her rapidly diminishing options.
Aisha is produced by Tristan Orpen Lynch, Aoife O’Sullivan, Donna Eperon and Sam Bisbee. The executive producers are Hallee Adelman, Ivy Herman, Jenifer Westphal, Joe Plummer, Lance Acord, Jackie Kelman Bisbee, Wendy Neu, William Byerley, George Rush, Alison Thompson and Mark Gooder.
