HOT TICKET

He Is Divine
A documentary on Divine returns to Houston for two screenings

You may think you’re divine, but you’re not the Divine. That would be Glenn Milstead, who, with the aid of John Waters, became the character they created and shocked, delighted and enlightened moviegoers. From underground films to Waters’ commercially successful Hairspray, Divine was made for stardom, and he took full advantage of his talents.

Divine director Jeffrey Schwarz.
Divine director Jeffrey Schwarz.

I Am Divine, a documentary of his flamboyant life, produced and directed by Jeffrey Schwarz, is amazing, hilariously funny, and spot-on in chronicling the life of the fat drag queen who wanted to be famous. And was. As the opening night selection at last year’s QFest, I Am Divine was a sell-out success. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston film program brings the documentary back this year for two screenings, March 8 and 14, at the Brown Auditorium Theater. Chock full of archival footage, film clips, and interviews with those who knew him best, even if you think you know the iconic Divine, you’ll be amazed by his story as told in this documentary.
