The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

A story in different variations: the role of a young, unsuccessful actress is being cast. The candidates don’t know that at the moment of their audition, they’re already part of the film. Casting Tapes is a painfully funny panoptic of acting as a career. A reflective, semi-documentary gaze at attempts at artistic self-realization.
