A new documentary about one of John Water’s most famous stars is making the rounds at film fests, mostly notably South by Southwest. Jeffrey Schwarz’s I Am Divine chronicles the mad-cap life of Glenn Milstead’s alter ego, a trash-talking drag queen from Baltimore who helped cement Waters’ own career as one of the filthiest people alive.

Expect to see cameos by those who knew Divine best, including co-stars Tab Hunter, Mink Stole and Ricki Lake, as well as other dragsters, like Andy Warhol’s own superstar Holly Woodlawn and one of our faves Jackie Beat.

Schwarz is also responsible for Vito, a documentary about early AIDS activist and The Celluloid Closet author Vito Russo for HBO.
