    Major Arcana

  • Song Without a Name (Canción sin nombre)
    Song Without a Name (Canción sin nombre)
    Available to rent Nov 6 - Dec 4
    Based on harrowing true events, Song Without a Name tells the story of Georgina, an indigenous Andean woman whose newborn baby is whisked away moments after its birth in a downtown Lima clinic - and never returned. Stonewalled by a byzantine and indifferent legal system, Georgina approaches journalist Pedro Campas, who uncovers a web of fake clinics and abductions - suggesting a rotting corruption deep within Peruvian society. Set in 1988, in a Peru wracked by political violence and turmoil, Melina León’s heart-wrenching first feature renders Georgina's story in gorgeous, shadowy black-and-white cinematography, "styled like the most beautiful of bad dreams" (Variety).
  • Rocks
    Rocks
    Available to rent Nov 20 - Dec 23
    Powered by fantastic performances similar to Deniz Gamze Ergüven's film Mustang of a few years back Rocks focuses on the friendship of a group of young black 15-year-old girls from Hackney growing up in London’s East End. Honest poignant and raucous this is the best film you will see this year. From food fights to real fights to jubilant moments such as the girls dancing around on a roof top belting Tina Turner at the top of their lungs Rocks whips up a heartfelt refreshing coming of age tale. (Abi Ahearne)

    Ham on Rye, a coming-of-age comedy centered on the nervous excitement of youth and the strange horror of entering adulthood uses an expansive ensemble of over one hundred performers, including non-actors, musicians, 90's Nickelodeon child stars, and more, to explore a suburban community’s relationship with a prom-like ritual and the decay of the human spirit. It begins with the crowd-pleasing spirit of a John Hughes movie and fades slowly into an off-kilter dystopia with the energy of Dazed and Confused.
