This documentary by David Di Sabatino is a part of the SF Indie Film Festival. What do you do when the Jesus freak who started your church dies from AIDS? Simple, erase him from history.
Lonnie Frisbee was a young hippie seeker fully immersed in the 1960s counterculture when he claimed to have experienced an encounter with God while on an acid trip. The event so transformed him that Lonnie became an itinerant Christian evangelist, something of a John the Baptist of Southern California who compelled thousands toward a profession of faith in Jesus Christ.
Fascinatingly, his call into Christian ministry came while deeply involved in the Laguna Beach homosexual scene. And because he died as a result of AIDS in 1993, he's been marginalized from history by the very men whom he helped establish with their evangelistic ministries.
Controversial throughout his life, the brief but dynamic career of evangelist Lonnie Frisbee is a powerful story of biblical proportions. "Frisbee: The Life and Death of a Hippie Preacher" captures the dramatic journey of this spiritual seeker turned Jesus freak who thousands remember as the agent through whom they experienced spiritual transformation.
