The 2001 film adaptation of John Cameron Mitchell’s Hedwig and the Angry Inch will be released on Blu-Ray for the first time June 25, in a new 4K digital restoration featuring newly added special features.

Only available on DVD since its 2003 release, the Criterion Collection release will feature 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack, as well as original audio commentary from creator and star Mitchell and cinematographer Frank DeMarco.

Also included is a new conversation with members of the cast and crew, including Mitchell, DeMarco, composer-lyricist Stephen Trask, hairstylist and makeup artist Michael Potter, animator Emily Hubley, actor Miriam Shor, and visual consultant Miguel Villalobos. Composer-lyricist Trask is also featured in a new interview with music critic David Fricke. The 85-minute documentary, Whether You Like It or Not: The Story of Hedwig, featured on the 2003 DVD release, is also included.

Packaging for the Criterion Release features new cover art, as well as an essay by Stephanie Zacharek, production photos by Potter and costume designer Arianne Phillips, illustrations by Hubley, and excerpts from two of the film’s inspirations: Plato’s Symposium and The Gospel of Thomas.
