John Waters is a filmaker, author and photographer based in Baltimore and New York City who became famous as “the Pope of Trash” (William Burroughs) and the “King of suburban exploitation.” Waters’ work shows “gleeful irreverence and appreciation of the American grotesque.” His films, photos and writings make the transition from underground to mainstream without losing their aesthetic. Among his best known films: Mondo Trasho, Multiple Maniacs, Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, Serial Mom, Pecker , and Cecil B. Demented. He is also the author of Shock Value; Crackpot; Trash Trio; Director’s Cut; Art: A Sex Book. Ballroom is pleased to welcome this legendary filmmaker to Marfa.
