I AM DIVINE at PhilaMOCA
Sunday, December 8, 2013
I AM DIVINE
Doors at 7:30, Movie at 8, $10.

We are beyond excited to present to you a brand new documentary about the most beautiful woman in the world... the filthiest person alive... the legendary, the outrageous, the one and only... DIVINE!

I AM DIVINE is a definitive biographical portrait of Harris Glenn Milstead, a.k.a. Divine, and honors him in just the way he always craved  as a serious artist and immortal star. Divine's entire story is told, from his early days as a misfit youth in Baltimore through his rise to infamy as a cult superstar. Like the characters he portrayed in numerous films, Divine was the ultimate outsider.
He transformed himself from a bullied schoolyard fat kid to a larger-than-life personality and underdog royalty as his alter-ego Divine. Divine stood up for millions of gay men and women, female impersonators, punk rockers, the ample figured, and countless other socially ostracized people. With a completely committed in-your-face style, he blurred the line between performer and personality and revolutionized pop culture.

As outrageous and fun as its subject, I AM DIVINE combines movie 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, 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.
