In this video conversation, film director John Waters makes an argument for why the production and viewership of offensive films is important. He also opens up about some of his favorite obscene movies of all time. He explains that even the worst of X-rated films have value in our society in that lawyers from those studios have the money and power to fight the law on the content they produce, which, in turn, gives poor, suffering artists the ability and freedom to incorporate similar subject matter into their more intellectual pieces.
John Waters reveals why it is so vital for people to tolerate the limits of freedom and gives his insights into why we need to embrace all freedoms of expression, even ones that may not always be perceived as socially redeeming.
