Point Entertainment presents This Filthy World: An Evening with John Waters

Sat., April 18, 2020
April 18, 2020
7:30 pm

This Filthy World is John Waters’s rapid-fire one-man spoken word “vaudeville” act that celebrates the film career and joyously appalling taste of the man William Burroughs once called “The Pope of Trash”. Updated and expanded from the original film version that enjoyed critical success at the Edinburgh, Toronto and Berlin Film Festivals, the live performance of This Filthy World focuses on Waters’s early negative artistic influences, his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, the extremes of the art world, Catholicism, sexual deviancy and a love of reading.

This live performance is part of a two-day John Waters Festival which includes screenings of Polyester on Fri, Apr 17 @ 9:45PM and Hairspray (1988) on Sat, Apr 18 @ 4:30PM.
