New York City Casting Calls: Casting Arab American female for “917 Heaven”

“917 Heaven” is a story about Ramadan. Its main storyline follows Moe, Mohammed, who juggles his Muslim beliefs and dedications against his American lifestyle that he has come to integrate and love. Conflicts arise between Moe and his mother, who is trying to push marriage upon him. Moe and his father, who has been separated from his mother for some time and has never connected with his son(s). Throughout the story we see how Moe and his family and friends react to Ramadan each year and this year in particular as they are getting older and maturing, or not.

This film will be sent to Sundance this year.

Characters needed:

Shreen, 20s, Arab American female:
Actor needs to be of Arab (Muslim) decent as a request from the director. Shreen is a sweet Americanized Muslim girl, who breaks the rules of Ramadan but plays to the obedience when around elders. She tempts our main character to break his Ramadan practice for a night of fun.
