Working With Johnny Depp and Teaching in Prison
John Waters, legendary director and brilliant chronicler of outsider culture, was interviewed by Scion AV All Purpose Show host Prince Paul during a private conference that Scion held in Marfa, Texas. For this segment of the discussion, Waters mainly covers his experience outside of the underground during his surprisingly fruitful time working with big time Hollywood studios (though he also detours into some talk about teaching in prison). He describes why both stars and notorious figures—from Johnny Depp, to Traci Lords, to Patti Hearst—have all agreed to appear in his movies, and what they get out of hanging out with him in Baltimore for two months. Waters also explains why mega global hit Hairspray is really the only subversive thing he’s ever done.
