Mondo Trasho
by John Waters
USA, 1969, 95 min., English

Cult director John Waters’ first full length feature, Mondo Trasho is a weird, boundary-pushing dream in which decapitated chickens, foot fetishists, and visions of the Virgin Mary collide. True to Water’s unconventional, light-hearted approach to shock value, the film follows the bizarre journeys and encounters of Mary Vivian Pearce, who plays a young blonde ‘bombshell’, and a hit-and-run driver played by Divine—the iconic drag queen in his first starring role.
