Notes about Hookers on Davie


Quote by the Director

"Underneath, this [Blood & Donuts] is a very tender story about trading in loneliness for friendship. It's not unlike the documentaries myself and Janis Cole made where all the characters may seem like antiheroes. In Hookers on Davie, Michelle, who is an outrageous drag queen that is half woman, half man, inside is a very warm and wonderful human being. Thematically, I think Blood & Donuts is in keeping with the work I've always done, trying to dispel stereotypes."
-- Holly Dale (source)
