Audition for Actress required for Feature Film

We are looking for a PERSIAN actress for this Danish film. She only speaks FARSI and it would be great (but not necessary) if she could sing!

Leila (Female, 50 - 60)
Description:FARSI SPEAKING! Persian playing age 50-65.
Leila is Sarah's mother (see synopsis).

We are looking for a woman who can play an Iranian diva :-)

The Leila character was a famous Iranian singer, but during the revolution she had to flee the country with her young daughter Sarah. Her husband did not mange to get out of the country in time. He died in prison in Theran. Leila never got over her late husband. She lives in Denmark but very much stays in the Persian community, where she still performs at smaller local events. She had a lot of money when she arrived in Denmark, but by now she and her daughter are living off the last bit of her savings and the money she makes singing.

It is therefore very important to her that Sarah finishes her law school studies. Leila is very relieved when Sarah first meets Esmail, because deep down she hopes that Sarah will marry a good Persian man.

The Leila character only speaks in Persian in the film, so the actress does not need to speak Danish.

If she can sing it is a good thing, but not a necessity.

PLEASE ADD TO THE NOTES SECTION ABOUT THE FARSI AND SINGING
