MOONS of CAVIA: Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Short url:

The winter-sleep might have been strangely long, but this summer, as always, we will celebrate our love for cinema in full moonlight. Cavia’s MOONS will take place across the whole month of July on three Fridays and three Saturdays in our building’s courtyard. We will present an eclectic, vibrating, and savage array of films that run from punk destruction and illegal raves to remote beauties and little- known charms. Summery love-stories, rebelliousness, timeless encounters, and a special attention to all kinds of music.

The entrance for all the events is free but donations will be very much appreciated.

Doors and bar opens at 19.00
Films start at 21.00


John Cameron Mitchell | 2001| USA | 95’ | EN subs

A twisted, eccentric and melodramatic tale of the pursuit of freedom, unrequited love and musical careers in the land of promises. East Berlin Rock n Roll genderqueer diva Hedwig performs her punk burlesque life story which orbits around her unwanted sex surgery, her German past, and foremost her ex-lover and ex-bandmate Tommy who left her –itching and angry– and is now a successful solo musician. The film follows Hedwig and her backing band, the Angry Inch, as they shadow Tommy's tour, while exploring Hedwig's past and her gender identity.
