2) two men, Leif Ratkovich and Emri Payne, wander through fields and abandoned houses of post-apocalyptic Kansas in search of food. Beets, the youngest and the only one who knows how to read, find a copy of the wonderful Wizard of Oz and begins to treat the novel as if it were a historical documentary, using your surroundings as evidence. Leif comes the question whether OzLand is a "house" as described by Dorothy Gale, and Emri offers every day is a journey for "home".

He shot as he was backed by major Studio with a blockbuster budget."

Jacob MEDEL lives in La wrote that OzLand is rich in detail and powerful character driven narrative. Writer, producer and Director Michael Williams, the film is a kind of vision that should be Leif and Emri as they travel through the barren desert in search of a place to call home."

Katie Walsh in the Los Angeles times wrote a mixed review, criticizing the writing, but praise the camera work and the music of writing "bright, rich cinematography and minimalist guitar score Keatzi Gunmoney are the strengths OzLand, but they cant overcome the meandering story and stilted dialogue. Film Director, screenwriter, producer, shot and edited by Michael Williams takes what could be an interesting idea for a short film and stretches it across 105 minutes. Ideas are not deep enough and the dramatic tension is not enough to support this feature."
