This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast, we’re featuring a special Q&A on Hedwig and the Angry Inch with co-creator, director, and lead John Cameron Mitchell and makeup artist and hairstylist Mike Potter, moderated by FLC’s President Lesli Klainberg.

After falling in love with a U.S. Army sergeant, an East Berlin boy named Hansel undergoes a sex-change operation so that he can legally marry his beloved. But the operation goes awry, leaving the boy less than a man, but not quite a woman. Deserted in a Kansas trailer park, now Hedwig reinvents themself as a rock star. Based on the hit off-Broadway musical. 

Catch Hedwig and the Angry Inch for free this Friday on Governors Island, presented in association with Newfest, with a pre-show DJ set from John Cameron Mitchell and Michael Cavadia starting at 7pm, and an introduction from John Cameron Mitchell before the screening. Ferry ticket reservations are required before the event.
