Vincent Gallo's Buffalo 66 (1998) chronicles Billy Budd (played by Gallo) in the 24-hours following his release from prison, during which he kidnaps Layla (Christina Ricci) from a ballet studio and asks her to play-act as his wife, changing her name to “Wendy Balsam” in the process. Despite Billy’s aggression and emotional abuse, Layla ultimately (inexplicably) falls in love.
We wonder what Layla would have to say if Gallo's gaze afforded her the opportunity. Would she talk back? Would she explain? We want to find out! WHICH WITCH is calling on interested individuals to attend one of our casting calls for Project Layla. Come ready to improv Layla's backstory! No acting experience necessary!
