‘Filth elder’ John Waters explores his ‘Role Models.’

Author and filmmaker John Waters

For more than 40 years, John Waters has been one of the most original voices in contemporary pop culture. His films, including “Pink Flamingos,” “Desperate Living,” “Polyester,” “Hairspray” and “Pecker,” brought the underground and independent creative spirit to mainstream audiences.

Waters is also the author of several books, including his latest, “Role Models,” released last month. In “Role Models,” Waters pays homage to the people, some famous, some not, who helped to make him who he is today.
