Drawing for My Untitled German Short Film

Nicola Pérez did this drawing for my German short film. In the story one of the characters made it at age 5 and her mother kept it for many years on the refrigerator and then later on the fireplace mantel amongst family photos for 20 years. The mother had immigrated to the U.S. after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Now that child wants to emigrate in search of a better life outside the U.S.

Cast Call for Untitled Short Film in German

This production has been suspended due to Covid-19 until it is safe to shoot again.
Production title: Untitled German Film
Union and Non-Union actors accepted.
Production Type: Independent
Project length: Short Film
The story follows a mother and her three daughters. The mother immigrated from the former East Germany sometime in the 1990s after the Berlin wall was opened, seduced by the image of the U.S. The two oldest daughters, who came as young children with their mom, now want to immigrate back to Germany, drawn to a culture they never got to experience growing up, one that recently welcomed more than a million refugees. The daughters feel estranged from what they perceive of the current U.S. cultural and political environment. While the mother grew up in a country that built a wall to keep people in, the daughters see that they now live in a country where the phrase “build the wall” is chanted at presidential campaign rallies. There is also a third daughter, who was born in the U.S. and is torn between her mother and her two sisters.
CASTING CHARACTER (almost all dialog will be in German)
Hannah, female, age 20-35. Any ethnicity. Speaks German fluently as her first language. Born in Germany, but brought by her mother to the U.S. as a young child.

Hannah’s mother grew up in the former East Germany, which built a wall to keep people in.
