Zach Clark (White Reindeer) Talks with John Waters for The Talkhouse Film Podcast

To mark the restoration of Multiple Maniacs, filmmaker and longtime Waters fan Clark sits down for a chat with the Pope of Trash himself.

On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film podcast, White Reindeer director and regular Talkhouse Film contributor Zach Clark sits down with one of his filmmaking idols, John Waters, whose second feature Multiple Maniacs is now on release in a beautifully restored new version. Clark and Waters’ highly entertaining conversation touches on such topics as Waters’ encounters with people as diverse as Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Justin Bieber, the theatrical stunts he used to pull to get publicity for his films, why he loves Terrence Malick’s movies (even though he really shouldn’t), his mother’s reaction to seeing his first film, recent movies he and Clark have enjoyed, and much more.
