H.P. Mendoza's 'Fruit Fly' at Frameline33

June 22, 2009

The film musical follows Bethesda, an Asian American woman who searches
for her biological parents while living in an artists' commune in San
Francisco's gay-friendly Castro district. Check out Momo's review of Fruit Fly from this year's SFIAAFF.

The film's genres are listed as "Asian, Drama, Gay, Latino, Lesbian, Music/Music Video, Musical." If that's not diverse enough for you, then I don't know what is.

Fruit Fly is playing on Saturday, June 27 at 1:15 pm at the Castro Theater. You can buy tickets here. You can also visit Mendoza's official site and download the film's original soundtrack from iTunes.
