October 22, 2016

In 1970s Baltimore, a brash, young director behind a pencil thin mustache began making some of the most bizarre and shocking films anyone had seen. John Waters and his cast of misfits made Mondo Trash, Multiple Maniacs, followed by the film that would garner them the most attention Pink Flamingos. With Waters’ fame, studios began offering more money and a chance for mainstream recognition. Waters continued making subversive films that then began showing on screens all over the country. Hairspray, Cry Baby, and Serial Mom all brought Waters’ taste in trash to the suburbs. The filmmaker continued making films into the 21st century with Cecil B. Demented and A Dirty Shame.
