DIVINE DIVAS REVIEWED
“Divine Divas” follows the theatrical movement that brought drag to Brazil. The Rival Theater has been discussed in prior work, but never quite humanized. Divine Divas finds the heart in what makes generations of these men fight their country’s rigid moral code. The idea of machismo is still not quite grounded in America, but the attempts to explain it translate well. Still, I feel like this rather lengthy documentary could’ve been edited to tighten the focus. I’d recommend a viewing for those wanting to pick up something new during Pride Month.
