Pink Flamingos

Pink Flamingos

Director: John Waters

(1972, 93 minutes, rated NC-17)

Within a year of the release of John Water’s epic “exercise in poor taste,” Peter Hujar was friends with the director and performers Divine and Cookie Mueller. Pink Flamingos tells the story of the unforgettably terrible Babs Johnson (Divine) and her battle with a criminal couple (David Lochary and Mink Stole) who aim to steal her tabloid-given title as “The Filthiest Person Alive.”

The exhibition Peter Hujar: Speed of Life will open at 6 pm for program attendees.

Friday, March 2, 7 pm

Exhibition-related films are free with museum admission. 

Advance reservations for members only. Tickets are available at the Admission Desk on the day of the screening.
