CineWilde Presents – HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
Director: John Cameron Mitchell
2001, USA, 95 Mins., 4K Digital Cinema - 5.1 Dolby Digital, R
Language: English | German
John Cameron Mitchell and composer-lyricist Stephen Trask brought their signature creation from stage to screen for a movie as unclassifiable as its protagonist, inhabiting a “beautiful gender of one.” The film tells Hedwig’s story through her music, an eclectic assortment of original punk anthems and power ballads by Trask, matching them with a freewheeling cinematic mosaic of music-video fantasies, animated interludes, and moments of bracing emotional realism. A hard-charging song cycle and a tender character study, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a tribute to the transcendent power of rock and roll.
