‘Ananas Comositus’ is a short film about a girl who contracted old ancient disease called ‘Ananas Comositus’. The disease results in a skin condition in which marks appear on the body with a shape of… a Pineapple.

The audition is on Friday 7th of October at 3PM at 226 Grey St, South Bank QLD 4101.
The shooting day is on 23rd October from 9AM-5PM. Location details will be updated soon.

This is a student film project, made for TropFest Short Film Competition. Unfortunately, we will not be able to pay for actresses but we are more then willing to cover any travelling and cost and will definitely provide great catering.

Carmen

An aboriginal woman in her late 20s to early 30s (let’s say 31). As a result of her upbringing she is fearful of illness, but most irrationally scared of skin disease. She is about as disgusted by illness as she is of cockroaches, a lot.
She comes from a family of 6, so she naturally developed a loud voice in order to be heard over her siblings. She is terrible at keeping secrets and as stubborn as a mule at times. When she she makes mistakes she has the character to realise them.

Dee

28 year old and also an aboriginal woman. Dee is direct and serious because she doesn’t like to waste time. Dee and Carmen are best friends and this is the first time they live together.
She was brought up in Cairns to a family that tended not to associate with the aboriginal community for whatever reason her parents had. Because of this, she doesn’t view illness with the same paranoia as Carmen and in this sense can’t understand why she is so scared of addressing the problem.
