John Waters visits IFC for Hairspray and Female Trouble Viewing
HAIRSPRAY (1988) and FEMALE TROUBLE (1974), two landmarks in John Waters’s storied filmography, will have one-week revivals at IFC Center, Friday, July 27 through Thursday, August 2, with Q&As with Waters himself after opening night screenings of each. A glorious ode to 1960s Baltimore now celebrating its 30th anniversary, HAIRSPRAY was one of Waters’ biggest commercial successes, spawning a Tony-winning Broadway show. FEMALE TROUBLE (1974), starring Waters muse Divine in the story of cha-cha heel-hungry schoolgirl-turned-criminal Dawn Davenport, has recently been restored by The Criterion Collection.
