Ava is a newly employed air hostess. Landing in her first country away from home, she thinks about her friends and family routines in relation to the new timezone she’s in.

The film is set across 12 months, with the character Ava learning how to relate to distant and uncontactable people, through time zones and connecting through generic routine. The film is about time and the different speeds it can move in. In 12 minutes of screen time, a full year’s worth of emotions and life experience are depicted. The character Ava learns and forgets things in the matter of minutes. Comes terms with losses and new friendships and skills.

The script and formula of the film will be made up of a number of improvised exercises in relation to a rigid structure and a generic routine. The character Ava is strong-willed and independent. She’s imaginative and nostalgic, an escapist but aware of it. Ava has disassociated herself from the idea of home, but finds refuge in the independence of the feeling, while mourning the loss of it. To practice learning a new language, Ava’s often describing things and the room around her, in a broken foreign dialect. Ava’s parents have separated a long time ago and she only has a relationship with her mom, brother and sister. Her mom back home is dismantling their family home and downsizing to an apartment. But when Ava fantasizes about home, she imagines the kitchen of the apartment looking exactly like her childhood home, and her bedroom looks exactly the same.

I’m looking for someone to play this character who is open-minded to largely constructing a lot of the dialogue and performance through improvisation, rehearsals and experimentation. Also someone who can speak two languages, but if not we can work around that.

Due to the current state of Melbourne, we’ll be holding auditions and further rehearsals over Zoom.
