Santa Fe Independent Film Festival and Meow Wolf present John Waters- This Filthy World: Dirtier & Filthier

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, September 6th at 10am

Santa Fe Independent Film Festival announces a special evening with John Waters will be a highlight of the 2017 fest on Saturday, October 21st at The Lensic Performing Arts Center. The main event of the evening will be John Waters' LIVE, with Meow Wolf as Presenting Sponsor. In his one-man-show, "JOHN WATERS - THIS FILTHY WORLD: DIRTIER & FILTHIER, John Waters highlights his impressive film career and perverse taste. The living independent film legend (HAIRSPRAY, PINK FLAMINGOS) who William Burroughs dubbed "The Pope of Trash," will follow his show with a book signing of his latest title ROLE MODELS.

John Waters grew up in Baltimore in the 1950s, obsessed by violence and gore, both real and on the screen. With his counterculture friends as his cast, Waters began making silent 8mm and 16mm films in the mid-'60s. By the early 1970s, he was making features, breaking into world-wide notoriety with PINK FLAMINGOS (1972) - a bold exercise in ultra-bad taste. Waters successfully crossed over to Hollywood with HAIRSPRAY (1988). Waters continues to create daring independent films today. His film HAIRSPRAY was turned into the eight time Tony award-winning broadway musical. Buy Tickets Directly
