Casting for Snow on the Moon
A new film that will shoot in New Mexico, Snow on the Moon, is looking for actors, extras and crew members. This feature-length, 1973-set movie based in a makeshift commune will shoot in private lands near Dixon, N.M., from Aug. 20 to Sept. 7. Producers are seeking ethnic musicians (particularly those who play doumbek, berimbau and sitar); older Spanish-speakers; Native Americans, especially men in their 40s or 50s; and white females between the ages of 16 and 18 who can play roles of 12- to 14-year-olds. One or two crew interns or volunteers are also sought, as well as a cook with knowledge about food safety in the desert.

A former Wall Street executive is released from prison. He sets out to see his ex-wife and children, who have since started fresh in a small Kansas town called Bunker Hill. When a large-scale terrorist attack strikes the country, fear and violence rise to the surface of the town as it tries to protect its citizens.
The premise of Bunker Hill mirrors America's regretful history following 9/11 and asks watchers to choose between freedom and fear.
The Santa Fe Film Center (1616 St. Michael's Drive) will host a week-long run of Bunker Hill, opening Saturday, Aug. 9. Actor Wes Studi (Last of the Mohicans) will introduce the film on opening night, and director Kevin Willmott will take questions from the audience. The film starts at 8:15 p.m. For more information, visit bunkerhillthefilm.com.
