Storyline

"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 ...

hedwig and the angry activists!
26 August 2007 | by hawkeyesroostSee all my reviews

being a huge fan of hedwig and the angry inch, i was very excited to see this documentary. i was not disappointed. this films follows a group of people who actually do something to help others in need and it is refreshing to see a cult hit go beyond the normal boundaries of a play/movie/soundtrack. i was moved by the kids in this film who just wanted an education and have suffered so much for their identity and education. i really wanted to give them all a big hug and let them know that some of us do care and that activism can do some good.

i was pleasantly pleased to see the crystal ballroom in this film, being from portland it definitely gave me a rush of excitement to see people from all over the country get involved. please go see this film and buy the album. help your fellow humans get an education.
