Legendary filmmaker and MFF Board Member John Waters is being honored with a 50 year retrospective at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. “Fifty Years of John Waters: How Much Can You Take” runs Friday, September 5th – Sunday, September 14th.
Waters was interviewed in today’s edition of The New York Times about his retrospective:
“It’s like being alive at your funeral. I’m not going to get anything better.”

The retrospective includes screenings of his 12 feature films; early, little-seen shorts, including “Hag in a Black Leather Jacket”; and a selection of films he says he envies, like Roger Michell’s “The Mother,” about an affair between a grandmother and a pre-Bond Daniel Craig.
