Audition Description

About nostalgia in a time of contradictions. It merges the best of Absurdist theatre and New Wave cinema, and is centred around a story which takes place solely on a bench, at night

While waiting for a taxi which fails to arrive, the protagonist, Samuel, must come to terms with his own insecurities about himself as a writer and as a person. Out there in the foggy night, he makes the acquaintance of an elderly person from an ex-USSR nation, who is both happy to enlighten him and to prove him wrong, and Elizabeth, a flashy millennial, who'd like to make him come out of his shell.

Note: Actors should not be afraid to channel their theatre stage presence for this film, and be willing to dedicate a few (paid) days of rehearsal in early March as the director intends to integrate this project into his Master of Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia. Furthermore, there will be some light choreography involved for a "Midnight Alley Mise en Scene" for the characters of Elizabeth and Samuel

Shoot Dates: 4 days between March 26th and 31st
