Casting call for a film with shooting due to take place before the end of the month and all roles are paid.
Date: Wednesday 29 Aug, 7pm – 9pm
Location: Theatre Royal Stratford East
Pass the Comb is a 15 minute short film which tells the story of Jerome, a youngster in conflict and Chantelle, his older sister who uses her calming influence, reasoning skills and the cultural tradition of braiding hair on her younger brother. Each completed corn-row demonstrates the benefit of Chantelle’s ‘hair therapy’, words of wisdom and advice.
But how did Chantelle get so wise? And is she really the picture of innocence she portrays?
