I Am Divine

I Am Divine

USA, 2012, 90 Minute Running Time

ENDS THURSDAY at the Sie FilmCenter.

I Am Divine is the story of Divine, aka Harris Glenn Milstead, from his humble beginnings as an overweight, teased Baltimore youth to internationally recognized drag superstar through his collaboration with filmmaker John Waters. Spitting in the face of the status quos of body image, gender identity, sexuality, and preconceived notions of beauty, Divine was the ultimate outsider turned underground royalty. With a completely committed in-your-face style, he blurred the line between performer and personality, and revolutionized pop culture. I Am Divine is a definitive biographical portrait that charts the legendary icon’s rise to infamy and emotional complexities.

"Before Boy George, before RuPaul, there was Divine!" - the New York Times Critic's Pick!

"... an enjoyably naughty trip through Divine's career that happily makes time to introduce us to Glenn Milstead, the sweet kid and fledgling hairdresser who transformed himself so daringly." - Hollywood Reporter


DIRECTOR: Jeffrey Schwarz
