About

Over the past 3.5 years, we have shot video footage of 22 different groups of people, each improvising characters based on the imagery and archetypes of the Fool's Journey through the Major Arcana of the Tarot.  This story is a metaphor for the journey through life, and each of these cards represents a different stage of that journey.  The actors in this project were given only brief direction, so that the movie would embody the collective experiences of its participants.  

We are seeking financial assistance to complete the editing and post-production of this project.  The funding we are seeking for this project would help the two "directors", Zeljko McMullen and Severiano Martinez to spend one month working together to carve out this collective unconscious narrative and present this work to the public in a much more professionally polished form than it presently stands.
