Filming is scheduled to begin in late October and the creators hope to have the film ready for submission to the international film festival circuit in spring 2014. Co-director Badir Awe said he was excited to get the ball moving on the project, working with local cinematographer Agustin “Froggy” Gonzalez and producer Judy Singh.

Casting starts this month with an open casting call on Saturday and Sunday 21 and 22 September  from 1pm to 6pm at the Harquail Studio Theatre, located behind the Harquail main stage theatre.
