We need three talented actors to join us this production season.

For over 14 years, Sydney Film School has trained filmmakers from Australia and around the world to reach industry-standard skills and knowledge. Every year, students graduate from the school with award-winning student films and enter into the film industry with a professional portfolio and a network of friends and experts in the field.

A young boy is interrogated for his misdoings by an atypical torturer. The boy, who had given up on life, finds a new light through the torturer’s philosophy:”All of the mistakes from the past can be redeemed, if we make something better out of them”. But, the torturer can not protect the boy from his frenzied commandant.

This film contains strong dark themes, please be advised when applying.

This is an unpaid but professionally shot production, and all footage can be used for show-reel material.
Further, we are hoping to build a network between filmmakers and acting talents for future productions.

Rifki, coming from an Arabic heritage, is a smart, strong willed boy from a poor family. All of his brethrens and parents have been murdered. His thirst for revenge betrayed him, and led him to being interrogated. He is unable to figure out why all of this has happened to him. The only reason that reconforts him is the idea that God is dead.

Male, aged 18 to 22

Applications closed 7 October 2020.

The Torturer

Well educated, very literate, highly energetic. A torturer who believes he is making the world a better place. He sees himself as a teacher. He believes that by being a torturer, he disables an immoral man from obtaining that position, that it is, in itself, an act of heroism. His strong beliefs make him confident, and they keep him sane.

Male, aged 28 to 60

A small, nerve-ball of a man. An immoral and sadistic character. His egocentrism is overwhelming, he overuses his power for his own pleasure.
