In the publication’s second issue the director of the camp classics Pink Flamingos, Hairspray and Polyester spews on the state of independent film, Hollywood and his latest production, Cecil B. DeMented.
True to the magazine’s promise to deliver the first interactive, cross-platform publication, film lovers will also be able to experience Waters over the airwaves, with ifcRANTS’ short segments on IFC, as well as via exclusive footage online at www.ifcRANT.com.
