"If Your Memory Serves You Well" is a short mystery-drama following a university student as he wakes in a mysterious mansion. He finds it empty, except for a strange caretaker. It is revealed the student is at home and he is an elderly man suffering from Alzheimer's disease, his last memories being as a student at university and thus he, as well as the audience for most of the film, still see him as a young man. The caretaker is also revealed as being his daughter, caring for him.

We're looking for three roles to be filled. The Student, the Caretaker and the Old Man. For the Student and the Caretaker, we're looking for actors who can project believable emotion, but who also have some comedic timing for the film's moments of comic relief.

The Caretaker

A character who seems to be the caretaker of the house the Student finds himself in. Initially aloof and detached, she avoids answering the Student's questions while also tending to his needs.

We are looking for an actress who is interested in a dramatic role with comedic moments to bring this character to life!
