Dir: Jeffrey Schwartz | US | 2013 | 90 mins
Documentary with John Waters, Divine, Ricki Lake, Tab Hunter, Mink Stole
Award-winning filmmaker & producer Jeffrey Schwartz (Vito) takes on the life of Harris Glenn Milstead – better known as his outrageous alter-ego Divine – in this fun, committed documentary, which follows his path from a boy uncomfortably drawn to feminine pursuits to a flagrant artist who stood up for gay and transgender communities, female impersonators, punk rockers and misfits everywhere with his provocative performances and personality. Key to his transformation was meeting director John Waters, who helped him cultivate the outlandish Divine, cast him in several of his films and who contributes much to this warm, affectionate film.
