Movie Trailer: I Am Divine
I Am Divine is a new documentary by Jeffrey Schwarz that is currently still in production and isn’t due out until next year. However, there’s already a teaser trailer to help promote the film, which is embedded above.
The trailer includes tons of great clips of the drag queen icon from classic John Waters films such as Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, Polyester Multiple Maniacs and Hairspray. Plus, there are brief interview snippets with both Divine and her male alter ego Glen Milstead, as well as with her Polyester and Lust in the Dust co-star Tab Hunter; and, of course, John Waters.
Although the film isn’t due out for a year, there’s already tremendous interest in the film based on its Facebook page gaining nearly 10,000 Likes in just a couple of days. As of this writing, the trailer also has about a 1,000 views and its only been up less than two days.
Jeffrey Schwarz previously directed the documentary Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story, which screened at numerous underground and indie festivals in 2008, such as the Boston Underground, Calgary Underground, Revelation and Spooky Movie.
Lastly, the Underground Film Journal ran a poll the other day asking readers to vote on their favorite Divine movie role. While the poll is still open, the clear winner as of this writing is Dawn Davenport in Female Trouble. You can still go vote.
