Major Arcana

Avaialble to rent Nov 6 - Dec 4
Directed by Josh Melrod
2018, USA, 82 min

This title is available to rent via Cinematheque at Home. This is not only an opportunity for our patrons to see new cinema, but is an important way that they can continue to support independent film during this pandemic with 50% of all sales supporting our theatre.

Set in the backwoods of Vermont, Major Arcana follows Dink (Ujon Tokarski), a carpenter who struggles to move beyond his troubled past when he returns to his hometown to mend relationships and finds solace in building a log cabin by hand. His plans are complicated when he reunites with Sierra (Tara Summers), a woman with whom he shares a difficult past, and he is forced to reconcile his old life with his new one.

Reviews

Major Arcana works on every level to convey the sense of a place in slow decay, and the sad futility of an attempt to find some familiar hope in the crash site of a former life.

– Bradley Gibson, Film Threat

Josh Melrod’s understated debut suffuses its pastoral setting with warm light and grace, finding the beauty in solace and hard work as it brings to mind the films of Kelly Reichardt.

– David Knipe, Cinematheque Manager of Operations and Special Programming
