For my shortfilm "Underneath" I am looking for an actor in the role of "Adam".
Rather strongly built, dark skin, dark hair, fluent in english.
His role: together with Derya he works at the Botanical Gardens. He is her friend, but also her "cover-up lover". Together they take magic mushrooms and go on a trip through the gardens.
Derya is a Muslim girl struggling to accept her own sexuality. She was abandoned by her Turkish family ever since she expressed romantic feelings towards another woman. Since then, Derya struggles with denial, confusion and uncertainty. Not only has she lost her family, but also her first true love due to her inner conflict.
She works in a Botanical Garden alongside her ‘cover-up lover’ ADAM, where they have been tempted to try magic mushrooms offered by another co-worker. The trip takes Derya on a journey down the gardens, exploring her inner fears, trying to make sense of them and accept them.
If you are interested, please send me a picture, show reel and some information about yourself per mail. For any questions concerning more information about the project, or the screenplay please let me know!
