It’s a Gay Essential:
As his directorial debut, H. P Mendoza wrote, directed, and composed the soundtrack for the 2009 film Fruit Fly. Set in Mendoza’s home of San Francisco, this musical tells the story of a young Filipina performing in gay bars as she searches for her birth parents.
“A sort of musical riff on Armistead Maupin’s Tales Of The City, Fruit Fly focuses on Bethesda, a performance artist newly back from the Philippines, who moves into a room in a San Francisco artsy commune.”
— Big Gay Picture Show
“Fruit Fly draws much mileage from its setting, with song sequences shot on streets, in parks and on Bay Area Rapid Transit trains. It has confidence, exuberance and certainly attitude.”
— The New York Times
