Bresson wrote: “Make people diviners. Make them desire it.” An audio diary and mixtape of Masha Tupitsyn’s quest for love, the Tarot Diaries consists of two parts and mines a personal 10 year archive of Tarot and astrological divination. Soundtrack, autobiography, and cartomancy, Tupitsyn turns to the stars and to the power of intimate dialogue for questions & predictions about belief, love, expectancy, loss, crisis-masculinity, and, above all, the role of fate and future in late capitalism. Part II of The Tarot Diaries features clips from various thinkers on love—Nina Simone, bell hooks, Jean-Luc Godard, Kathleen Hannah, Derek Jarman, Esther Perel, James Baldwin, Kathy Acker, the pastor Toure Roberts, Audre Lorde, and LA writer Johanna Hedva with her own Tarot love story. Musical cameos by Mooval, PJ Harvey, Blondes, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, Craft Spells, E.D.G.E, High Powdered Boys, Rufus Wainwright, The Carps, Thomas Newman’s Desperately Seeking Susan score, and Gwen Stefani.
