Guadalajara fest plays ‘Dirty’

Greek cinema retrospective also planned

HOLLYWOOD — Indie shockmeister John Waters will open the Guadalajara Film Festival on March 11 with his latest pic, “A Dirty Shame.”

It’s Waters’ first time at the nine-day fest, which also will screen his pics “Pink Flamingos,” “Hairspray” and “Pecker.”

“It seems fitting to open with something controversial for our 20th anniversary,” said fest director Kenya Marquez-Alkadef.

“A Dirty Shame” is about a woman who suffers a concussion and becomes a sex addict. The cast includes Tracey Ullman, Selma Blair and Johnny Knoxville.

Fest will feature a retrospective on Greek cinema including “Young Aphrodites” (1963) by Nikos Koundouros and “Ifigenia” (1997) by Michael Kakoyannis, among others.

French film fund Fonds Sud Cinema is screening five pics it has financed during its 20-year history. Fund has backed 320 pics from 60 developing nations.
