    Joshua Tree, 1951: A Portrait of James Dean, screens Friday, June 1 at 7 pm at the Plaza Theatre

    Fairy Tales is proud to be the third festival in the WORLD to screen this beautiful film written and directed by Matthew Mishory.

    Joshua Tree, 1951 is a hotly-anticipated portrait about the early years of James Dean as he explores his relationships with both men and women, and develops his acting style in LA and New York.

    Film Synopsis: Joshua Tree, 1951 is a fearless, intimate portrait of James Dean on the cusp of becoming both a great actor and an outsider icon. Set in the early 1950s and focusing on Dean's experiences as a rising star in Los Angeles, the film's surreal and dreamlike vignettes blend biographical and fictionalized elements to present pivotal moments in his short yet remarkable life.

    The film screens at our festival on Friday, June 1 at 7 pm at the Plaza Theatre. Director Matthew Mishory and Producer / Actor Edward Singletary will be in attendance at the screening and participate in a Q & A after the film.

    Everyone welcome! Tomorrow we reveal Film #2 of the Seven-Day Countdown to the Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival Launch on May 2.

    Gun Hill Road screens at the 14th Annual Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival on Tuesday, May 29 at 9:30 pm at the Plaza Theatre.

    Gun Hilll Road is a tense and tender portrayal of a family struggling to adjust after husband and father Enrique returns home after three years in prison. Set in the Bronx, the film asks questions about gender and sexuality amongst a prejudiced street mentality. An honest, true portrait of a family in crisis with every side of the story told well.

    Can a father's fierce love for his family overcome his street-hardened ideas about manhood and end the vicious cycle controlling his life? Writer/director Rashaad Ernesto Green's first feature film is an intricate portrait of a family divided told with sensitivity, gentle humor, and a deep understanding of the environment that shapes its people. Featuring an outstanding performance by artist and first-time actor Harmony Santana who plays Michael/Vanessa.

    Blattangelus screens at the 14th Annual Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival on Sunday, May 27 at 7 pm at the Plaza Theatre.

    A fascinating glimpse into the lives of LGBT people in a predominantly Catholic country. Blattangelus follows two connected stories in a seamless narrative about faith and love in Mexico City. The film begins with the story of Mauro and Juan, a couple who are happily preparing to get married at the Metropolitan Community Reconciliation Church. The Church is presided over by Jorge Sosa, a devoted and fascinating authority figure who we first meet in the Gay Pride parade in Mexico City.

    Sosa carries the film with the force of his personality and belief in creating a place of worship and respect for people of all orientations. In fact, he calls his church an “oasis”, a place where the LGBT community can worship, receive health information as well as be bolstered by Sosa’s fiery rebuttal of the politics and hierarchy of the Vatican Church. The joy of Mauro and Juan’s wedding at the Metropolitan Community Reconciliation Church speaks volumes to the power of love and the unifying factor of a strong community of faith that includes all people.
