The Brazilian film About the film: “The Divine Divas are the icons of the first generation of Brazilian transvestite artists in the 1960’s. One of the first stages to host men dressed as women was the Rival Theatre, ran by Américo Leal, the director’s grandfather. The film shows the intimacy, the talent and the stories of a generation that revolutionized the sexual behavior and defied the moral of a time.” – Film director Leandra Leal
