WITH THE MUSIC OF HEDWIG

NOW AVAILABLE ON VHX AND FANDOR

PRODUCED IN ASSOCIATION WITH SUNDANCE CHANNEL - BROADCAST ON SUNDANCE CHANNEL

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 Harvey Milk High School, the first accredited 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. Through a dramatic and vibrant combination of verité documentation, student video diaries, and rare in-studio scenes of artists recording tracks, Follow My Voice: With the Music of Hedwig offers a powerful look at this unique intersection of youth, gender and rock.

Featuring Yoko Ono, Rufus Wainwright, Stephen Colbert, Cyndi Lauper, The Breeders, Yo La Tengo, Ben Folds, They Might Be Giants, Sleater Kinney and many more plus Hedwig and the Angry Inch creators John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask.
