Chrissy Judy is a black-and-white romantic comedy that tells the story of a great friendship and the desire to find their own way in the world. We talked about it with the director and star of the film Todd Flaherty, for the first time behind the camera, but also for the first time in the role of a drag queen.

Chrissy Judy: Judy’s been described as many things: a free spirit, a day dreamer, a boy-crazy hot mess. But this is going to be the summer it all comes together for this ambitious, 30-something drag queen/cater-waiter and his best friend, Chrissy. That is, until Chrissy’s priorities suddenly shift, forcing a disillusioned Judy to examine his life and priorities as a queer artist, and rediscover himself in the process. In this dark comedy, “Chrissy Judy” explores the universal pain of breaking up with your best friends and questions, “What do you do when your chosen family no longer chooses you?”
