Queer Cinema Tomorrow- Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Tomorrow Night we will be Showing Hedwig and the Angry Inch, an American musical comedy drama film about a fictional rock band fronted by an East German Transgender singer: Hansel Schmidt is an East German “slip of a girly boy” who loves rock music, and is stuck in East Berlin until she meets Luther Robinson, an American Soldier. Luther falls in love with Hansel and the two decide to marry. This plan will allow Hansel to leave communist East Germany for the capitalist West. However, in order to be married, the couple must consist of a man and a woman.
