I AM DIVINE
Automat Pictures, 2013, 90 minutes
Directed by Jeffrey Schwartz
In this definitive biographical portrait of Divine, his entire story is told, from his early days as a misfit youth in Baltimore through his rise to infamy as a cult superstar.
The movie combines film clips, rare home movies and photos, television appearances and live performance footage with brand new interviews with John Waters, Ricki Lake, Mink Stole, Tab Hunter, Holly Woodlawn, Michael Musto, Bruce Vilanch, Divine's mother Frances Milstead (who provided her final interview just months before she passed away), and many more of Divine's family, friends, colleagues, and devotees.
