John Waters reveals sequel to ‘Pink Flamingos’

John Waters

According to ArtNews, John Waters, shown here in an over-Botoxed fake portrait, will screen a new 74-minute video at Marianne Boesky Gallery at his exhibition that opens there on January 9, 2015. Since Waters hasn’t released a feature-length film since 2004’s A Dirty Shame, this is basically the closest the master of camp has come to a new movie in over a decade.

Called Kiddie Flamingos, the video depicts a table read of Waters’ 1972 film Pink Flamingos, which is as full of any kind of obscenity and depravity that one would hope to imagine–only here it’s been recast as a children’s movie, with child actors and all the X-Rated content “defanged and desexualized,” according to the gallery, which also calls this G-rated version “more perverse than the original.”

This is Waters’ third show with Marianne Boesky. It closes on Valentine’s Day.
