Ever wonder what it would be like to bring your favorite dead rock star back to life? Alberta certainly has in The Second Age of Aquarius. Since she was a kid, she’s dreamt of a world where ultimate Sixties rock icon Russell Aquarius was still alive and writing songs just for her. Now a successful computer programmer, she takes her fandom and wishful thinking a step further and makes a Russell Aquarius avatar. Her loneliness and a freak power outage give her more than she bargains for when sparks fly not just in her computer, but also in reality when Russell’s avatar comes to life! He’s everything she dreamed… at first. Turns out Russell Aquarius thinks he’s having the ultimate bad trip and he wants to bring Alberta along for the magic carpet ride!

Written and directed by Staci Layne Wilson (Fetish Factory), written alongside Darren Gordon Smith (Repo! The Genetic Opera), and based on an original story from their book Sex Death Rock N Roll, the film stars Christina Jacqueline Calph (Arthur), Michael Ursu (Wildness), Martin Olson (Phineas and Ferb), Jeffrey Henderson (Wendigo), and Keeshan Giles (Curb Your Enthusiasm). Special appearance by award-winning actor Brooke Lewis Bellas (Sinatra Club).

The Second Age of Aquarius will be released on 11 February streaming on Amazon Prime Video, iTunes/AppleTV, Google Play/YouTube, Microsoft Xbox, Vudu, and Vimeo in the US. The UK release date is TBC.
