ZANYA(Yes, I know what it means in Arabic. Don't worry about it,the name is never actually mentioned in the script)- Abdul's single mother. She came to this country a few years ago to escape the religious fanatics of home. She sees the U.S. as a place that provides opportunity but at the same time is working against her. Zanya's greatest annoyance is her son's dedication to Islam, and tricks him into thinking he is doing Allah's will to get him to help her out in car theft.

Project Details:



I am directing a short film entitled "Far From Baghdad". The film focuses on two stories, one of an immigrant Muslim mother and son who resort to car theft to make ends meet, and that of a US soldier formerly stationed in Iraq whose must deal with his own devoutness to Catholicism causing him to get involved in child abduction. I will be holding auditions NEXT Sunday, 8/12, at my house and we will be filming on 8/17,18,19. If you reply to this please be available for those dates and let me know what role you're interested in. THIS IS A MICROBUDGET, NON-UNION, STUDENT FILM, BUT TRUST ME, IT'LL BE DAMN GOOD.

Thanks for reading this and I look forward to hearing from you!
