    CASTING COMMENTS: Sam Motazedi is an Iranian-Canadian filmmaker. As a writer/director, the underpinning of his work is based on the social and cultural examination of characters who dwell on the fringe of society. He’s currently based in Toronto, Canada. Soledad Vega is a film and content producer based in Toronto, Canada. An interest in affecting change through the power of visuals led her to innovative ways of visual storytelling, including documentary, fiction and more recently interactive media. The production house Mad Amendments has received a Media Artists Creation Project grant from the Ontario Arts Council to produce Toward You.

    Conversational Farsi required. To play 16. An eccentric Iranian-Canadian teenager with a knack for viscerally evocative poetry verses. Her offbeat demeanour coupled with her deep-seated desire to perform for a large crowd becomes a ubiquitous refrain in the movie as well as the central dramatic core of the story. As she goes from place to place in search of an audience, she’s met with intransigence and apathy and must dig deep to remain steadfast in her pursuit.
