About the talk

Film historians Lee Gambin and Sally Christie from Melbourne based film collective Cinemaniacs, will introduce you to the divine and decadent inspirations of the Pope of Trash himself, Mr John Waters.

From Waters’ obsession with Jayne Mansfield, his celebration of showmen such as terror-maestro William Castle and how the killer-child from horror classic The Bad Seed ignited such creative zeal, this sidebar event to MQFF’s special screening of Multiple Maniacs is a definite must-see for all fans of cult cinema!
