amanecer

Last Saturday I spent a few hours in the women's toilet at the Uni of NSW filming a small role in short film Amanecer (Daybreak).  I was introduced to writer/director Alvaro D. Ruiz by Matias Stephens who I travelled to Bourke with earlier this year: Matias plays the lead role.  Alvaro has written a beautiful short story that will resonate with many of the immigrants who have come to Australia in search of a better life.  My role is a small one: a crooked employer who takes advantage of others.  The film's mentor is Claudia Karvan and you can have a look at a teaser and be kept up to date here.  I can't wait to see it!
