John Waters Film Lecture — June 3rd —

29 May

Seattle Arts & Lectures and Seattle International Film Festival present:
John Waters

Tuesday, June 3, 2008, at 7:30pm

The films of cultural juvenile delinquent John Waters see beauty and truth in trailer-trash junkscapes and the outrageous, disgusting doings of polite society’s outcasts. From his earliest movie, Hag in a Black Leather Jacket (1964), to Pink Flamingos (1972) to Fruitcake (currently in production), his work has been driven by an us-versus-them, hip-versus-square dynamic in which being bad is good and the minority outsiders who embrace their “neuroses and obsessions” are the cool ones who emerge as winners. Over the past four decades, Waters has been a cinematographer, film editor and composer. He has written and directed 16 films, acted and appeared in 100 films and TV shows, published eight books, and exhibited his photography worldwide. Join Seattle Arts & Lectures, SIFF, and the smiling man with the pencil-thin mustache for an original talk and an unforgettable evening.
