Jarocin: Rock To Freedom is a documentary about one of the most important festivals in the history of alternative music. Like Woodstock, it got its name from the small village where it began, and was an oasis for those marginalized by Poland's communist system. It was also the milestone event for Poland's punk rock movement, which alongside more recognized figures like Solidarity and Pope John Paul II, helped destroy communism in the 1980's.

John Waters’ gloriously grotesque second feature about a traveling Cavalcade of Perversion led by the larger-than-life Divine returns – fully restored and in cinemas for the first time in decades. Made on a shoestring budget, this gleeful mockery of the peace-and-love ethos doggedly tests the limits of taste and stars Waters’ beloved Baltimore regulars, the Dreamlanders. Multiple Maniacs remains an anarchist masterwork replete with all manner of depravity, from robbery to murder to one of cinema’s most memorably blasphemous moments!
