New York casting

Asghar Farhadi's work would be a good point of reference., In an ideal world, Golshifteh Farahani or Taraneh Alidoosti for Fareena and Shahab Hosseini for Hassan would be prototypes. SEEKING: all roles below shoot for 2 days. Naturalistic; not melodramatic or charactery or comedic.

HASSAN: Middle Eastern Male (late 30s) Well-dressed, visiting the USA to guest lecture at a nearby university. Stoic. Conflicted in his belief system. Strong and loving but lets his ego get the better of him at times. Beard/facial hair helpful: not cleanly-shaven **Speaks Farsi or Arabic.

FAREENA: Middle Eastern Female (early-mid 30s) Wears a hijab. Is pregnant, optimistic about the people in the world around her. Wise beyond her years. Compassionate, gentle and kind.​ ​ **Speaks Farsi or Arabic.
