I am, You are
Written and Directed by Robert Riglietti, Produced by Amelia Votta

In an unorthodox mental hospital run by a despotic doctor, an institutionalized man is exposed to a questionable form of treatment while his concerned mother pleads for the release of what is left of her son.

Tentative shoots dates are April 7th, 8th, & 9th – Accepting both Union and Non-Union Actors

Auditions by appointment Friday, March 3rd & Sunday, March 5th at the University of Rhode Island’s Kingston campus.

To schedule an audition, please contact Amelia at iamyouarefilm@gmail.com with head shot, resumé, and specify the times and day you are available. If neither of those days work, we are also scheduling Skype auditions, and video submissions on an as-needed basis. Once an audition date is set, the script will be emailed to you, with specific sections outlined to prepare. We also ask that you prepare a monologue to perform as well.
