Product Description

A woman searching for her parents goes on an unexpected journey of self-discovery in this comedy drama with music from filmmaker H.P. Mendoza. Bethesda L.A. Renigen never knew her mother when she was growing up; she was adopted by a family on the East Coast as a baby and has grown up wanting to know the truth about her birth parents. After a visit to the Philippines in search of her cultural identity, Bethesda has come to San Francisco, where she was born, in search of her mother. Bethesda, who is a performance artist, rents a room in a loft complex in San Francisco's Castro district, where she strikes up a fast friendship with a number of fellow artists living there. While Bethesda finds support and understanding from her new friends, she resents being regarded as a fag hag, since the lion's share of her new pals are gay. However, as Bethesda is immersed in San Francisco's gay community and art scene, she begins to develop a greater understanding of herself and her identity, which has a powerful impact on her work.
Also starring Mike Curtis, E.S. Park, and Theresa Navarro, Fruit Fly includes a handful of musical numbers featuring original songs by writer and director Mendoza; the film won the Audience Award at the 2009 San Francisco International Asian-American Film Festival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't sure what I was expecting November 20, 2012

but this film exceeded my expectations. It is very quirky but very watchable. The music is witty and upbeat. And it leaves you feeling good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Quirky September 6, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Very enjoyable., I highly recommend it. The actors are not American Idol singers but that adds to the charm of the movie. A great movie to just kick back and enjoy.
