Arcanum Productions is a film production company started and run by Oberlin alumnus Mika Johnson. Currently, the Arcanum is working on Johnson’s latest piece, entitled Amerika: A notebook in three parts. This film traces the journey through America of a Japanese woman named Kat. Kat’s journey is both physical and spiritual as she searches for a genuinely “American” experience.
What is most notable for Obies about this project is that parts of the filming will be down right here in Lorain County. Johnson is working to keep his costs under $1 million, and is shooting several scenes in the area with the aid of students in the Cinema Studies program.
