Event Details

The ‘Pope of Trash’ is coming to Salem. Musing on his early childhood in Baltimore, cult film legend John Waters (Pink Flamingos, Cecil B. Demented, Serial Mom) will identify his favorite horror influences, including tacky drive-in movies and local burlesque performers. He recalls his rocky introduction to film, how his longtime friend Divine, a genderbending drag performer known for his outlandish stunts, inspired some of his most famous work and what he really thinks about "this filthy world."
