Content Warning: Sexual Assault; Drug Abuse

Our film "Nobody's Listening" is a short film about Avinash, a hardworking engineering student at university, who aspires to write poems when he is older. However, after being sexually assaulted by his roommate in his dorm, Avinash turns to drugs to cope after nobody believes him.

We are all film students with all crew having at least a year of training and / or industry experience - this will be the director's graduation film for his course. We are all hoping to show the film at film festivals, however this is still being worked on. As a thank you, you will receive a copy of the final film (once this has been marked by the examination board) and can use the film as part of your portfolio. You will also be credited for your role.

Please note that this is a film about sexual assault and drug use. While the sexual assault is heavily implied, this will not be explicitly filmed. There will be scenes of drug use however.
