ABOUT THE DUMPSTER RACCOON SERIES
Learn how some slip of a girly-boy from communist East Berlin could become the internationally ignored song stylist barely standing before you as we KICK OFF PRIDE WEEK at a special DUMPSTER RACCOON CINEMA singalong screening of HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH (2001)!
Presented with video pre-show, queer opening performance, and open captions throughout – BELT ALONG as LOUD as you WANT as we relive the rollercoaster ride of Hedwig’s journey from the wreckage of Berlin to Miss Midwest Midnight Checkout Queen to the disorienting depths of New York’s nightclub scene in one of the greatest and most iconic queer musicals ever made!
Filmed in and around suburban Toronto, HEDWIG was the low-budget indie rock musical that should have taken the world by storm…except it was released on September 12, 2001. Barely making back half of its tiny $6 million dollar budget, it could have been forgotten – except, like Hedwig herself, it rose like a phoenix from the ashes of defeat to become one of the great icons of queer cinema and a punk-rock star of stage and screen! – ANTHONY OLIVEIRA
