Irish Film Institute -IFI & DUBLIN PRIDE 2014: I AM DIVINE


Director: Jeffrey Schwarz

86 minutes, U.S.A., 2013, Colour

Director Jeffrey Schwarz presents a film about a true queer legend, the riotous, extravagant, incredible Divine! While growing up as an overweight gay teenager on the tough streets of Baltimore, Divine found solace in food, hairdressing and all things outrageous. Sharing his taste for the weird and wonderful was friend and neighbour John Waters, and their lifelong professional partnership produced some of cult cinema’s most celebrated films. Combining archival footage with hilarious interviews, this is a thoroughly rounded account of one incredible man’s life and work.

This film is presented in association with GAZE International LGBT Film Festival Dublin and Dublin Pride 2014.

There will also be a screening of God Loves Uganda (with panel discussion) on June 21st (12.00) as part of the IFI & Dublin Pride 2014 collaboration.
