Martha Wollner, legendary casting director, roams the streets in search of an actor to play the role of a criminal. Through the random encounters that Martha undertakes with passers-by found in the New York district of Queens, the film reveals the growing intimacy between strangers with extreme finesse.
Phillip Warnell is an artist-filmmaker and writer from London. He produces cinematic and art works exploring a range of philosophical, poetic and sensorial thematics: ideas on human-animal relations, the political and cinematic imagination, the presence of those with prescient or extraordinary attributes and the poetics of bodily and life-world circumstances. His work is often performative, establishing elements for a film shoot as (part) event, resulting in an interplay between scripted, documented and (sometimes) precarious filming circumstances.
