A Wheel & the Moon – a new short film in the works by Chris Paradis

June 21st, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Here’s another interesting IndieGoGo Tarot-ish project …

Chris Paradis, known in the Tarot world for his Rock n’ Roll Tarot, is directing a short film called A Wheel & the Moon.

Paradis’ screenplay is adapted from the Jonathan Carroll short story called A Wheel in the Desert, the Moon on some Swings.

It looks at the story of a young gay man who finds out that he’s going blind. In his quest to avoid dealing with what’s happening to him, he discovers the real miracle of vision.

I’m not sure exactly how the Tarot is incorporated into Paradis’ adaptation, but from the sounds of it, the cards play an important role.

Tarot art from Robert M. Place’s new Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery will be featured in the film.

And some of the perks for people who donate include Tarot readings from Paradis himself, and/or original artwork from Places’ new deck.

Take a look the Wheel & the Moon project page to learn more. I think this is going to be a fascinating film.

Chris Paradis' Madame Sosostris

Watch this short movie! It’s Chris Paradis’ take on T.S. Eliot’s Madame Sosostris. I love it!

You might remember Paradis as the creator of the Rock & Roll and Circus Tarots. What nice film work he does.

Madame Sosostris stars Angy Champine and Susan Grey.
