Divine Divas

Documentary Films | 2016 | 110 minutes

Stranger Says:

Divinas Divas is the name of a group of Brazilian “transvestites,” as they identify themselves, who’ve been performing cabaret acts since the 1960s. They have had their share of social indignities and artistic triumphs. The filmmaker of this documentary is the granddaughter of the man who runs the troupe, which may explain why the film lacks tension. It dwells lovingly on its subjects, and mostly consists of them performing and talking endlessly about romance, sugar daddies, what beauty is, the thrill of performing, and other topics.
