Mercy Land is a science-fiction film set in a future England, where a family tries to survive the harsh landscape plagued by gang warfare and climate change.

This is the 2nd indie feature film by Godiva Films, with a significant improvement in production values to our previous film.

We are shooting with a very talented crew, with a fairly sizeable rig on an Arri camera, the film also has a number of VFX elements, so will be a very eye-catching and exciting indie film. We have a secure location with private access to woodland and fields, with shooting set to commence in early 2021 for around 30 days.

We are hoping to find a number of talented male and female actors between the ages of 18 and 65.

Some roles are quite physical, with combat and some basic stunt work.
