Shira Haas made an indelible impression as the Emmy-nominated lead in the recent TV series Unorthodox. In Asia (2020, 85 minutes, Hebrew with English subtitles), Haas stars as a Russian émigré to Israel, navigating her teenage years along with her single mother, burdened by a largely undefined illness that makes all of her decisions infinitely more poignant. The film explores the inevitable chasm that divides the generations and creates barriers between the healthy and the sick – while telling a universal and timeless story of maternal love and loss.
