Join us for a very special edition of Summer Flickers as we are joined by composer Stephen Trask who wil introduce this week's film 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch' and host a special post film Q&A.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a 2001 musical film based on the stage musical of the same title about a fictional rock band fronted by an East German transgender singer. The film was adapted and directed by John Cameron Mitchell, who also portrayed the title role. The music and lyrics are by Stephen Trask.
