John Waters

Born in Baltimore in 1946, John Waters came to popular attention in 1972 with his transgressive comedic film Pink Flamingos. Although Variety deemed it “one of the most vile, stupid, and repulsive films ever made,” it led Waters to an enduring career as a filmmaker, writer, photographer, and lecturer. In 2015 the New York Times called Waters “the patron saint of the American marginal.”
