About the Film:
Linda Moroney, programmer for The Little's documentary series One Take: Stories Through the Lens, and our own employee Emily Hubley, both of whom worked on this film, will lead an audience discussion after the film. We love them and we know you will too!
Hedwig, born a boy named Hansel in East Berlin, fell in love with an American G.I. and underwent a sex-change operation in order to marry him and flee to the West. Unfortunately, nothing worked out quite as it was supposed to - years later, Hedwig is leading her rock band on a tour of the U.S., telling her life story through a series of concerts at Bilgewater Inn seafood restaurants. Her tour dates coincide with those of arena-rock star Tommy Gnosis, a wide-eyed boy who once loved Hedwig... but then left with all her songs.
