Release the Head
RELEASE THE HEAD is a story about a new-age drifter (played by Steve Gillard, CHETZEMOKA'S CURSE) who returns to his hometown where his ex-wife still resides, to try and start a new religion, called "Sol-Luna." Because he can talk-the-talk he's able to convince a gullible young man (John Barnum) to join his cause. Inadvertently, the young side-kick does some actual good as he circulates around Port Townshend, Washington, preaching "the word." He becomes an eager ear for various townspeople, hearing real-life stories about setbacks, family pain, and miracles, helping us to remember that "we are all our own messiahs." Produced as part of Rick Schmidt Workshop.
