Overland Film Casting Call New Mexico

Overland is the story of Noemi, a young, undocumented immigrant living in the United States. After escaping an ICE raid, Noemi tries to purchase a black-market “documents bundle” so that she can continue to work and send money home to her sick father. The problem? The bundle costs $500. In order to raise the money, Noemi starts working as a “fantasy maid”. Things quickly get out of hand, however, and Noemi must decide what’s more important—her dignity or the money.
Filming will be Feb.19th-22nd in Las Cruces, NM and El Paso, TX. All room and board will be provided for actors.

NOEMI: Must appear to be 25-30. Hispanic, slender/fit. Must be fluent in both Spanish and English. English can be limited, an accent is preferable. Strong personality and very protective of Sophie.

PABLO: Must appear to be 30-35. Hispanic, medium built, tattoos preferable. Happy demeanor. Must be fluent in Spanish (no English dialogue). Noemi goes to Pablo for a social security card. Pablo wants to help her, but he can’t shift the price. Instead, he offers her a job.

ANNE: Must appear to be 35-40. Caucasian, blonde, tall. (Mark’s wife) Anne is trying to make this rough patch with Mark work. She’s afraid that Mark has become bored with her, so she orders a Fantasy Maid for him to “spice up” the relationship. Native English speaker.
