Ethics in Film - Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001)

Doors open 6:30pm Suggested donation: $5, includes snacks and beverages

 Moderator: Chris Everett 

Hedwig, a would-be glam-rock star from East Germany, undergoes a botched gender-change operation in order to escape from the Soviet bloc, only to watch the Berlin Wall come down on TV after being abandoned in a trailer park in middle America. Writer-director-star John Cameron Mitchell packs an astonishing mix of sadness, yearning, humor, and kick-ass songs with a little Platonic philosophy tucked inside for good measure.

Entry to our 100-year-old building and meeting rooms is available for most wheelchair users with prior arrangements. Please call ahead  [masked] x 107) for setup of our portable system and plan to arrive one hour before start time.

    A Great film! Also some interesting discussion afterward, but ended too soon & I felt strangely 'mistrusted' . Maybe the next event will feel more Welcoming.

    I love your "ethics and film" series, but Friday night is difficult because here is always a collide of events. Is it possible that future event could be arranged at a different day in the week? I bet in that case many more would able to attend your events...

    Given the confusion, should you pull all three listings (V for Vendetta, Hedwig, and the incorrect date) and try again?

    Is it "V for Vendetta" or "Hedwig"?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
