Audition Description

If you could go back in time, what would you tell the younger you? Narrated by a teenager, Assurance is a short film about Xochi, a diffident girl who comes out as gay to her family and friends but cannot cope with the backlash. Feeling alienated from her loved ones, she is approached in school one day by a woman who looks oddly familiar, an older version of Xochi from the future. This interaction between her two selves reminds her that there is still hope and goodness in this world.

  • A young girl who is incredibly self conscious, troubled and even a little reclusive. We meet her first as a child of barely nine years of age. She seems to question the world around her and wonders whether everyone is like her. Her trust in human beings is already wavering. Xochi is a gentle soul who values kindness and compassion above everything else. We are looking to cast a girl between the ages of 9 to 12 years.

  • Role #2 - Older Xochi

    In her teens now, Xochi is pretty aware of her sexual orientation and a tad resentful of the judgement she seems to be dealt by her friends. Her family is hellbent on passing this off as 'merely a phase' and even her counsellor seems to be apprehensive if she is mature enough to know for sure. Xochi is bewildered at not being accepted for who she is and trembles at this getting worse as she grows older. We are looking to cast an actor who's not a minor but can pass for a fifteen year old.

  • Role #3 - Xochi or WOMAN

    A very strong willed woman, Xochi from the future (or simply 'Woman' as referred to in the script) is unruffled by the crudeness around her and yet preserves her sense of empathy. She holds herself with pride but has an air of caution about her. She seems contented and self contained. Her role is to play a mentor or a spiritual aid to her younger teen self.

  • Role #4 - Friend

    The 'friend' is the voice that causes the most anxiety to Xochi. She represents the toxic verbal and emotional abuse that Xochi has been subjected to since she began talking about her sexual orientation. A disingenuous and haughty individual, this friend is not really much of a friend at all and seems to sneer at and mock at most things that Xochi says. We are looking to cast an actor who's not a minor but can pass for a fifteen year old.

  • Role #5 - Friend 2

    Friend 2 is the voice of reason for Xochi. She symbolises the goodness that still exists in this world. Friend no. 2 is quick to reassure Xochi and she has a pleasant voice that matches her smile. She's the kind of friend who'd give you her own jacket if you're cold. Though soft spoken, she is mature and very supportive. We are looking to cast an actor who's not a minor but can pass for a fifteen year old.

  • Role #6 - Tia 1 and Tia 2

    Both very annoying aunts (in their late thirties) who are perpetually dissing on Xochi and her plans for her future. Somehow, everything they say, even a compliment seems twisted and barbed. They revel in instigating trouble and love picking faults with everything about Xochi from her personality to her haircut. Their mean comments loom over Xochi and plant the seeds of her insecurities.
