The sophomore effort by John Waters and first collaboration between the director and legendary drag queen Divine, Roman Candles presents a random sampling of images relating to The Wizard of Oz, sex, drugs and religion. Set against an equally random sampling of audio bytes of radio advertisements, rock and roll music and a press conference with Lee Harvey Oswald's mother, Roman Candles was shot on black and white 8mm film and shown in public three times.
