WASHINGTON: If stoner sci-fi is your cup of tea, a new independent film from Titan Sky Entertainment — Star Leaf — may be just what you seek. Debuting Saturday, August 22nd at the Egyptian Theatre in Seattle Washington, and shot on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, this sci-fi thriller follows three friends who search for a forest of extra-terrestrial marijuana hidden deep in the Olympic Mountains – hoping for an out-of-this-world-high that can cure PTSD.
Things start to get strange when a forest ranger mysteriously shows up at their late-night campfire with tales of alien visitors and odd animal behavior in the forest. And when one couple breaks the Star Leaf “code of conduct,” the evil aliens guarding the plant begin to stalk them.
Local filmmaker Richard Cranor penned, directed and plays a supporting role in a film that challenges traditional views of marijuana and PTSD. The film co-stars Russell Hodgkinson and Julian Gavilanes of Sy-Fy’s Z-NATION and features actual “Star Leaf” marijuana plants developed by Ohana Farms to help in PTSD treatment.
The movie begins at 11:55pm – part of the ongoing “Midnight Movie” screenings hosted by the Egyptian and SIFF’s Visiting Programs series. SIFF ticket sales are available here: http://www.siff.net/cinema/visiting-programs/star-leaf
