Cleveland-based composer Paul Francis Zegarac makes free audio soundscapes for anyone to use. He also has released short vignette films that explain his musical project.

Now, he’s made Release, an original short film about a woman who meets with her family to bury the pet dog. The film is loosely based on his experience with cancer/trauma.

“Although times are dark, moments of laughter, play, and meditation bring in some light and hope,” reads a press release about the movie.

Zegarac wrote and directed the film and Katie Zegarac co-wrote it with him. Zegarac edited the film as well.

The film screens at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday on its Facebook page.
