If you've never seen Hedwig and The Angry Inch get thee hence to your video peddler. I found the movie to be a joy. Of course I cried my eyes out.
I saw Follow My Voice Friday night on Sundance. The CD, Wig in A Box was created with the help of over 75 artists. A cd with a cause, namely Hetrick Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School. From their site:The Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI) is the oldest and largest non-profit agency created to serve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth between the ages of 12 and 21. HMI offers a wide range of programs including After-School and Supportive Services.
Follow My Voice gives you insight about the creation of the CD. You also see the story, interwoven with the footage of the artists, of 4 students of Harvey Milk,and their struggles and triumphs.
