Post-film discussion with BUSHWIG! 35mm print
20 years after HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH first appeared as a revue at the legendary rock n’ roll drag party Squeezebox, the creators of Brooklyn’s BUSHWIG festival are carrying the torch with their annual dragstravaganza, featuring the most exciting young queens in NYC. We’ll be joined by some of the girls and BUSHWIG founder Simon Leahy, who writes, “We grew up with Hedwig, and love it because it deals not only with performative gender expressions but also the idea of multiple genders in one being. It was the first film to bring these ideas to a mainstream audience.” Join us for this groundbreaking film, plus a special surprise or two.
