The Hollywood Reporter: You made a hilarious, new 74-minute version of your X-rated 1972 cult film Pink Flamingos, rewritten as a “desexualized sequel” — a children’s movie with an all-kid cast. Why did you decide to exhibit the video here, in this way?
John Waters: I don’t think of it as the next movie in my filmography at all.I don’t want it showing in a movie theater where people have to come in and take a seat and have to watch it straight through. You understand what the piece is if you watch it for 20 minutes.
The Hollywood Reporter: Tell me a little bit about how you reconcile your work in the worlds of art and of film, pop and pulp culture?
John Waters: I have gone to great lengths in my career to keep my art career and my film career completely separate. But my art work is as equal to me as making movies.
