!! OMG, the vision of Divinity: Jeffrey Schwarz interview !!

Jeffrey Schwarz has directed over 100 films; documentaries about movies, films on films, covering the making as such classics as ‘Footloose’ [this amounts to several films, obsessed much?!], ‘Bewitched’ and ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.
His in-depth documentary on the queen of all queens, Divine, premiered this year at SXSW and features previously unseen photos and videos provided by Divine’s mother Frances Milstead who was still alive when Jeffrey was collecting together his material for what he describes as “the ultimate ‘it gets better’ story”.
Schwarz sat down with Afterelton to discuss his dream of one day making a Divine Biopic, his search for film-funding sugar-daddies or “donor angels”, and remembering that John [Waters] and Divine, were creating “movies for gay people who didn’t get along with other gay people”:

“Today’s queers need to remember people like Divine and the people on the fringes who made it easier for the rest of us.”

True dat!
You can read the whole interview HERE [I promise only a single mention of canine excrement] and you can browse the North American film screening deets, after the jump.
