Hedwig & The Angry Inch
Rich in imagination and daring, director/screenwriter/star John Cameron Mitchell's triumphant transfer of the stage musical to the screen is a tour de force.

East-German transsexual musician Hedwig tells her life story as she travels across America on a B-grade rock tour.  When her lover absconds, stealing her songs to further his career, Hedwig is forced to face another betrayal.

Mitchell gives this post-punk, neo-glam rock extravaganza everything in his loaded arsenal of talents, breaking new ground by making music come alive on film without compromising its fierce energy or romantic soul.

Winner Best Film at the 2001 Berlin International Film Festival.
