Riz Ahmed Short Film Casting

Riz Ahmed Short Film Casting

London, UK
Listed by View details

We are casting for a short film produced by SomeSuch productions. The film is written by and stars Riz Ahmed, and will be Directed by Top Boy’s, Aniel Karia.

The story:
Set in a near, worryingly tangible future, racism and Islamophobia has now truly taken a vise-like grip of the United Kingdom. The extreme-right no longer exists on the fringes, but now occupies the political mainstream.

On the morning of Aminah’s wedding, a facist paramilitary force raids the family's home, wrenching them out of the lives they once knew. Men are executed - women and children are separated and transported away. It is brutal ethnic cleansing on the streets of London.

All of the cast must have an Indian or Pakistani heritage with the exception of a few roles.

They must be natural and confident actors, who can improvise and bounce off others well, as there is a loose script, so they need to be able to demonstrate a close bond with other family members.
