John Waters in Conversation
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.
