This Filthy World synopsis

John Waters is known as the "Prince of Puke," a moniker he embraces in both his life and his art. As he muses on his early childhood in Baltimore, Waters identifies his earliest influences, including tacky drive-in movies and local burlesque performers. He recalls his rocky introduction to film, how his longtime friend Divine, a genderbending drag performer known for his outlandish stunts, inspired some of his most famous work and what he really thinks about "this filthy world."
