Andrew Durham talks about his totally unmissable new film FAIRYLAND

Writer/director/co-producer ANDREW DURHAM talked with Queerguru about his excellent debut feature FAIRYLAND.  Based on Alysia Abbott’s “Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father.,, which is the story of her growing up in San Francisco with her gay single father in the 1980s/90s. Their unique relationship is based on both of them evolving into establishing their own truths/paths which are thrown askew when the AIDS pandemic starts to decimate the city. In the end, their roles reverse as Alysa must take over the parenting role.

P.S. We caught up with Andrew as the movie was about to screen at the  opening night of Miami’s OUTshine Film Festival
