Storyline

One record producer, the creators of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" and top indie rock artists come together to create a tribute album benefiting the Hetrick-Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk School- the first accredited high school in the country for LGBTQ youth. "Follow My Voice: With the Music of Hedwig" weaves the compelling, courageous stories of four students at this controversial school with a unique chronicle of the yearlong creation of "Wig in a Box," the album whose songs poignantly echo these teens' struggles and aspirations. Audiences around the world became instant "Hed-Heads" as Hedwig, like everyone who was ever young, questions "The Origin of Love," dreams of a "Sugar Daddy," feels like a "Freak" and curses a "Wicked Little Town." Meanwhile, the little known Harvey Milk School for at-risk youth, operating for 20 years in New York City's East Village quickly became the subject of international news when it received official accreditation and financial support from ...

A Great Look at Harvey Milk School - with a Good Soundtrack
15 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival. I had not seen Hedwig and the Angry Inch at the time I saw it, but really liked it. Basically, the film follows the recording of a tribute album to Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the proceeds of which go to the Hetrick-Martin Institute in New York, which runs the Harvey Milk School for at risk youth (primarily gay, lesbian, and transgender students forced out of their home high schools by violence). At the same time, the film also follows a handful of students at HMS through their lives and experiences.

I have since seen Hedwig, but I still think that Follow My Voice works best when it is focusing on the HMS students. The Hedwig recordings make a great soundtrack for the film, but it seemed like it was going in two different directions. That said, it was still a great movie and I would definitely recommend it to others - it just could have been better. As it is, it is a pretty good documentary that will make most viewers reconsider their preconceptions about sexuality and gender.
