Looking for 70+ Actress for one weekend shoot

About the project and the company

Hi, I’m making a short film about a son losing his mother and kind of learning to let go of her at the end. It’s going to be filmed as a realistic-fantasy film, where the mother is a visible, literal ghost that’s haunting him in the film. The mother-ghost herself is also obsessed with a watch– and this is going to be kind of a mystery that’s revealed– what about the watch obsesses her?

I’m looking for someone to play the part of the ghost– It will be a largely visual role (there is some dialogue but not much of it) and the actress will need to be very expressive. The mother (or her ghost) is going to be in almost every scene, and it’s a very important role for the film as a whole.

I have made several other movies that have done well at film festivals, including those below:

I want to make this a very smooth, professional shoot that we can all hopefully enjoy the process of making and the product at the end. The script is a very sweet one, and I’d be glad to share more of it if you’re interested.

Character breakdown / Project needs
A very visual role. I'm looking for an actress with a little bit of an ethereal presence but also someone that could humanize a non-speaking ghost.
