CASTING CALL - MASTECTOMY SURVIVORS
We are truly honored to be casting a very special role for the feature film “The Dark Divide.”
We're looking for a real breast cancer survivor who has undergone a single or double mastectomy. We are excited to portray this type of beauty and strength in an equally beautiful film. We would love to meet anyone interested, regardless of prior acting experience. You should be 18+ to apply, but otherwise there are no restrictions!
Based on the Guggenheim Award-winning memoir by one of America’s premier nature writers, The Dark Divide tells the story of Dr. Robert Pyle’s trek through America’s largest undeveloped wilderness and his encounters with its legendary inhabitant bigfoot, all set against the backdrop of the battle between environmentalists and the logging companies who want to harvest the forest's old growth timber.
The lead character, who lost his wife to cancer, stumbling upon a woman who has had a mastectomy. She is strong, beautiful, and bathing in the lake. She reminds him of his wife in a powerful and complex way.
NOTE: We will approach both the casting process and the filming with the utmost respect, prioritizing the comfort and consent of the performer at every step along the way. This scene requires partial nudity, the terms of which will be outlined in a prenegotiated nudity rider.
