Jeffrey Schwarz’s newest film I Am Divine is making its world premiere tomorrow night at the South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas.  It’s a feature-length documentary about Harris Glenn Milstead (otherwise known as Divine, who died 25 years ago), recounting his early days as a misfit youth in Baltimore through his rise to infamy as a cult superstar.  Schwarz recently sat down with David Poland to discuss his work on the film as well as his career.  I also have a personal connection to this film in that I actually contributed to its Kickstarter campaign.  As for the interview, it’s an excellent listen, and I hope you enjoy it:

I’ve also attached the trailer below:
