After 5 years in the New York agency world as a Creative Director, Ashima Aiyer decided to take the plunge into filmmaking, paying heed to the siren song within her.
She draws inspiration from her home in India as well as other Asian cultures, infusing the energy and ideas of the East into her storytelling. An innate desire to reflect humanity back to itself is what drives her to make films, in an effort to shift our perspective of being separate from those, whose reality and experience may not reflect ours identically.
