WUD Film presents a free screening of Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001) as a part of the LGBTQ+ Film Festival.

USA | 95 minutes | R | DCP | Dir. John Cameron Mitchell

Hedwig, born male as Hansel in East Berlin, fell in love with an American G.I. and underwent a gender reassignment surgery in order to marry him and flee to the West. Unfortunately, nothing worked out quite as it was supposed to - years later, Hedwig is leading her rock band on a tour of the US, telling her life story through a series of concerts at Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants.

"Thanks to Mitchell's electrifying work in front of and behind the camera, you'll find yourself falling in love with this rock odyssey," - Glenn Lovell, San Jose Mercury News
