Mother and Midwife Pictures is casting for the independent feature length film, “Papou”. An exact date and location are still be determined for auditions. Shooting is scheduled for July 8th through August 3rd in Southeast Michigan.

Synopsis:

The film’s title, “Papou”, is the Greek word for Grandfather. This is an independent, feature length, family film about the wonderful relationship between a spirited grandpa, Archie, and his equally spirited and highly imaginative grandson, Demetri (age 9). When Archie is diagnosed with cancer, he struggles to explain this to his grandson. The story is about living life and coming to terms with death, all from the perspective of a child.

Audition Roles:

  • Archie: Early 80’s, actor must speak fluent Greek. Thin, youthful-looking, most or all of his hair remains. Archie is a man from the “old country”. He is traditional, strong-willed, and sometimes even bull-headed. However, every ounce of his being he spends on his family and in particular, his grandson Demetri. Archie has the strength and energy of a man half his age; his disbelief that his terminal illness will kill him fades as his once vigorous lifestyle slowly falls by the wayside.
  • Kari: Early 70’s, actress must speak fluent Greek. Archie’s wife. Pretty and full of life even in her old age, Kari’s love for her family is equaled only by Archie. The news of Archie’s illness causes her to go into a state of denial, horror, and depression in a relatively short time. Kari believed she would have Archie around forever but the new development causes her world to crash down upon her with incredible speed.

Compensation:

We are signed with SAG. We will offer the rate according to their agreement, as well as provide on set meals. We will also cover travel and lodging.
