CAAMFest Online: Heritage at Home is thrilled to close our May festival with the 10th anniversary showcase of CAAMFest Spotlight Alum, H.P. Mendoza’s vibrant musical, FRUIT FLY.  And not only are we screening the film, it’s a brand new Sing-A-Long version!

FRUIT FLY is a musical comedy about BETHESDA, a Filipina performance artist finding home in the unlikeliest places. She moves into an artist commune in the Mission District in an attempt to workshop her latest piece which deals with finding her biological parents. In the process, she finds an artistic family, clues of her mother’s whereabouts, and the startling possibility that she just might be a fag-hag. Briskly bouncing from musical genre to musical genre, Fruit Fly contains 19 original songs written by H.P. Mendoza and marks his feature directorial debut.

This once-in-a-lifetime screen will include live performance and reunion of cast and crew.

Co-presented by Bindlestiff Studio and Balay Kreative.

Conversation moderated by Masashi Niwano, CAAM’s Festival Director.
