John Waters has been called The Sultan of Sleaze, The Prince of Puke, and The King of Schlock—all titles he wears proudly. For 50 years, the Baltimore-born director has been shocking and delighting audiences with his hilariously transgressive cult films (Hairspray, Pink Flamingos, Serial Mom) that subvert nostalgic visions of American suburbia. Waters went from a local boy making cheap, underground movies—finding talent at local bars, getting arrested, and being thrown out of college—to making counter-culture comedies in the Hollywood system. SFFILM executive director Noah Cowan interviews the iconic filmmmaker.
 

Due to explicit content, this event is recommended for mature audiences.
