John Cameron Mitchell to appear at special screening of new 4k restoration of Hedwig and the Angry Inch at SIFF Cinema Uptown August 17

HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
SIFF CINEMA UPTOWN
August 16-22


Writer/director and star, John Cameron Mitchell's iconic punk rock, genderqueer musical odyssey, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, returns to the big screen in a brand new 4k restoration to be shown at SIFF Cinema Uptown (511 Queen Anne Ave. N.) August 16-22.

Mitchell will be in attendance at the 6pm screening of Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Saturday, August 17 to introduce the movie and participate in a post-film Q&A after the show. Tickets: $14 at https://www.siff.net/year-round-cinema/cinema-venues/siff-cinema-uptown and at the box office, with student/senior discounts.

Based on Mitchell's own original musical (conceived for the stage in collaboration with composer Stephen Trask), Hedwig and the Angry Inch focuses on Hansel (Mitchell), an East German kid who falls for an American soldier and has a bungled sex reassignment operation in an attempt to become legally married to him. Having gone from Hansel to Hedwig, and left with a one-inch remnant of her birth gender, it's not long before the love affair is over and Hedwig, now in America, is alone and channeling her rage as the frontwoman for her critically reviled and woefully obscure band Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Using Greek myth to explain to herself and her audience the genderqueer reality of her being, Hedwig is ultimately both a phenom and a cipher, defined only by the art and life she lives.
