Preview: “I Am Divine” on FDL Movie Night Tonight Oct 28

Divine! The big, bold underground star who brought beauty and filth, anger, and outrageous humor to midnight movie screens! Divine and John Waters were responsible for so much of the attitude in pop culture and punk rock!

Divine, the star of Pink Flamingos and Hairspray broke down barriers and raised spirits, uniting  misfits and outcasts in a celebration of  all that is gloriously awful and sublimely ridiculous as he rose from a bullied teenager to cult star and international sensation.

I Am Divine chronicles the life of Divine from his Baltimore childhood as Harris Glenn Milstead through his years as John Waters’ muse and star, as he reaches his ultimate goal to achieve mainstream acceptance and global recognition. This is a movie about believing in yourself and  accepting yourself, two things Divine exuded and brought to his fans.
