Production Description

Casting a short student film for NYU, "A Boy Called Boris," in which 10-year-old Boris finds himself suddenly immersed in the seemingly hostile world of public schools after the death of his mother, who has home-schooled him up to now. Overwhelmed by the experience, and ill-prepared for his introduction into the strange new setting of the public school system, Boris finds that when he is called on to read aloud in class, he stutters. Angry, frustrated, and embarrassed, Boris plays hooky the next few days, wandering the streets of New York until he discovers a reason to return and try again.
