Summer Reading

A documentary by Julia De Santis and Shelby Hougui

Two young women face both the past and future, as they travel cross- country getting psychic readings along the way.

we are going on a journey across America
(and making a documentary about it)!

Along the way we will meet with psychics of all kinds—even animal communicators—in hopes of reconciling events in our pasts, better understanding the present, and thereby looking more insightfully to our futures.

Summer Reading was something that marked the moments in between stages of your education. Following our graduation in May, our Summer Reading will be just that, but we'll let the psychics do the reading.

Most, as children, believe in magic. Somewhere between adolescence and adulthood that belief fades.

“When the naive young fool finally tumbles over the precipice, he falls into the world of experience. Now his journey has really begun… but let me assure you of this: the only ones who’ll ever reach [their goals] are the ones who have the courage to make fools of themselves along the way.”
Tom Robbins, “Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas”


We are two Fools looking to the past and toward the future hoping to believe in magic once more. As both believers and skeptics, we are ready to face both the guarantee of disappointment as well as the possibility for truth – leaving the prophecy of our futures in the hands of others.
