Aisha is a hard-hitting drama that pulls no punches when addressing the flawed, broken asylum system in Ireland – and to mark its launch, on Sky Cinema, we had the pleasure in speaking to the creative talent that are bringing this important story to our screens; director Frank Berry and leading star Letitia Wright.

Wright, who of course can be seen in another movie out now (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – you may have heard of it) discusses the role at hand, while the filmmaker sat beside her talks in detail about the system he has depicted in this film, and what he hopes audiences will learn and take away from their experience watching this production.

Watch the full interview with Letitia Wright & Frank Berry here:


Caught in limbo for years in Ireland’s immigration system, a young Nigerian woman develops a friendship with an employee who she meets at one of the accommodation centres.

Aisha, a Sky Original is in cinemas and on Sky Cinema from 17 November
