Growing up in Baltimore in the 50's Waters was not like other
children; he was obsessed by violence and gore, both real and on
the screen. With his weird counter-culture friends acting, he began
making silent 8mm and 16mm films in the mid 60's; he screened these
in rented Baltimore church halls to underground audiences drawn by
word-of-mouth and street leafleting campaigns. As his film-making
grew more polished and his subject matter more shocking, his
audiences grew bigger, and his write-ups in the Baltimore papers
more outraged. By the early 70's he was making features which he
managed to get shown in midnight screenings in art cinemas by sheer
perseverance. Success came when _Pink Flamingos (1972)_ (qv) - a
deliberate exercise in ultra-bad taste - took off in 1973; helped
no doubt by lead actor 'Divine' infamous dog-shit eating scene. He
continued to make low-budget shocking movies with his Dreamland
repertory company, until Hollywood crossover success came with
_Hairspray (1988)_ (qv) in 1987, and although his movies might now
appear cleaned-up and professional, they retain Waters playfulness,
and reflect his life-long obsessions.
