HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
2001. US. 95 min. Directed by John Cameron Mitchell. 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 co-founders Matty Beats (aka Horrorchata) and Simon Leahy (aka Baabes Trust), 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.
As always, our screening will be followed by drinks and discussion at Julius Bar (159 West 10th St. at Waverly), the oldest gay bar in New York City!
The collective that brings you NYC’s annual festival of Drag, queer performance & music in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Founded by Horrorchata (Matty Beats) & Babes Trust (Simon Leahy) est. 2012. The second annual Bushwig was a huge success last year bringing together a diverse variety of entertainers, artists, club kids, and locals from all over the NYC area.
