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.
