We are casting for a 5-minutes one-take narrative film I’m not sick. The story took inspiration from the discrimination that many Chinese immigrants faced when the pandemic broke out in Wuhan, China. Misled by the media, some anti-mask Americans associate “Chinese” and “mask” with “coronavirus”, and regard Chinese who wore masks as life-threatening virus carriers.

This is a heartrending narrative discovering the misjudgment one might have toward the other culture, following a kind-hearted Chinese girl who became a threat in the eyes of a protective American mother.

This one-take project will be a big challenge for acting but also will be an excellent portfolio piece that showcases your extradentary performance. Actors with theatrical experience preferred. Characters’ descriptions are attached below.
