Fenton Bailey

Whether the subject is Tammy Faye Bakker, Monica Lewinsky or the openly gay silent film actor William Haines, writer, director and producer Fenton Bailey has a soft spot for making films about public figures ostracized or misunderstood by the media, and, by extension, society at large. Along with life and creative partner, Randy Barbato, Bailey has created some of the more groundbreaking and sometimes controversial documentaries and made-for-TV specials. Whomever their focus, Bailey and Barbato have managed to transcend the mocking cynicism heaped upon their subjects by a jaded public.
