At the heart of ASHA is an invitation to conciliation. Filmed in Nairobi, Kenya in 2014, ASHA is about a house-maid who is stopped by police simply because she has “the wrong name”. In appealing to a shared history rather than situating herself in opposition to the policeman, Asha creates a space for reflection and dialog, opening up a way to break out of a cycle of violence.
