Director: Katherine Linton
One record producer... The creators of the cult film and stage classic Hedwig and the Angry Inch... and some of the most influential indie rockers... They all come together to record a benefit album for a controversial high school in New York City supporting lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and questioning students.
Follow My Voice: With the Music of Hedwig looks at the stories of four teens, echoing their struggles and aspirations with music from the off-Broadway smash John Cameron Mitchell's Hedwig and the Angry Inch acting as a soundtrack to their lives.
Through a dramatic and vibrant combination of verité documentation, student video diaries and rare in-studio scenes of artists recording tracks, this film offers a powerful look at the intersection of youth, gender and rock. Includes The Breeders, Sleater-Kinney, Ben Folds, Ben Kweller, Ben Lee, Yo La Tengo with Yoko Ono, Rufus Wainwright, John Cameron Mitchell, Polyphonic Spree, Cyndi Lauper, They Might Be Giants and more.
