Telling Authentic Stories:
As filmmakers authenticity and honesty are of the utmost importance to our process. We want to work with Somali Canadians who have gone through the experience of moving to Canada to tell their stories. To do so we want to cast real people, not actors, and have them play the characters in the film and shape the narrative. Anyone who is interested and fits a description of one of the characters may audition. Acting experience is NOT NECESSARY.
We are looking to cast the following character:
A 65-85 year old man who was born in Somalia, serious and dignified, a loving head of a family. Must speak Somali.
