Director John Waters In-Person! New 35 mm. Print!!

FEMALE TROUBLE, 1975, New Line, 89 min. Director John Waters’ follow up to PINK FLAMINGOS, FEMALE TROUBLE is in many ways even more outrageous, a certifiable classic of politically incorrect, trailer-trash culture. Divine stars in a double role as juvenile delinquent-turned-sociopathic killer Dawn Davenport and macho loser Earl. Like Russ Meyers’ FASTER PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL!, FEMALE TROUBLE offers up more than its share of classic lines and bizarre, demented images. If you’ve only seen Waters’ later films such as HAIRSPRAY and PECKER, come get yourself an education on one of the subversive giants of American independent filmmaking! Our very special thanks to New Line Cinema, who will be releasing FEMALE TROUBLE on DVD in the near future.

We’re very excited to welcome director John Waters for a discussion following the screening of FEMALE TROUBLE with noted film critic Kevin Thomas of the LA Times! (Schedules permitting.)
