The definitive documentary on the definitive cult star is finally here.
Years in the making, I AM DIVINE is one of the most eagerly awaited documentaries of the year.
The only full length film covering Harris Glenn Milstead’s inspirational life and career from Baltimore outsider to John Waters muse to underground star to international drag icon. Featuring a selection of rare footage and interviews with fans and those who knew him best, including his mother Francis, interviewed before her death.
The film has been on ongoing labor of love, financially assisted by fans in a huge internet campaign, from the team who have produced previous documentaries on William Castle, porn star Jack Wrangler and Vito Russo.
Following it’s critically adored premier at the SXSW Film Fest and a sell-out preview at the bfi, this must-see cinematic event now comes to Manchester.

“It made me fall in love with Divine all over again.” – New Statesman
