Giving Frisbee another plug

Giving Frisbee another plug April 10, 2005

Only two weeks left until the public premiere of Frisbee: The Life and Death of a Hippie Preacher at the Newport Beach Film Festival. Here’s the blurb (and ticket-buying info):

As a young hippie, Lonnie Frisbee was fully immersed in the 1960’s counterculture scene when he claimed to encounter God while on an acid trip. This event so transformed him, Lonnie became a roaming Christian evangelist — something of a John the Baptist for Southern California. His strength of conviction compelled thousands to make a profession of faith in Jesus Christ. In addition to his caring influence, what’s most fascinating is Lonnie’s call to the ministry came while he was deeply involved in the Laguna Beach homosexual scene. Eventually dying of AIDS in 1993, the men whom he helped establish treated him with contempt and Lonnie has been written out of history.

There’s a link to an article of mine at that earlier blog post from a month or so back. The Q&A; I promised is still forthcoming; my editor wants to run it closer to the film’s premiere.
