The Day Therein (Short Film) - Two Male Actors Needed
The short film named ‘The Day Therein’ unfolds among a conversation between two men inside a house; Their interaction lasts only for a day. The conversation appears to have an intimate tone between the men but remains intrinsically surreal. The narrative of the film is fragmentary and elliptical, without setting the film in a specific time or a place. Language, meaning, and memory are all put into question, in order to negotiate an outcome. But the outcome seems further away with every step ahead.
This film is part of my final project and will be shown in the BA Fine Art degree show in Goldsmiths University of London.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesRehearsals during Dec/Jan. Production dates mid-Jan or mid-February.

Morris is a writer for the past 30 years. In the more recent years he finds himself becoming more and more secluded and isolated in his house. Moreover, his health is getting worse. His fear of obscurity has led his quest for meaning into a different place, in which he finds himself exposed without his consent to his companion. Somehow Morris is absolutely depended to his companion to write words, but Thomas seems to also be depended to Morris’ ability to form meaning.r

Thomas is Morris’ companion. He’s currently living with Morris in the latter’s house. Thomas seems to have an ability to know everything, but only when Morris allows him to see anything. Nevertheless, he also causes Morris great distress both by his appearance and what he says to Morris. Thomas is confident in his ignorance which does not seem to pose any obstacle for him to confront Morris about anything.
