Greatest audience among documentaries in Brazilian movie theaters in 2017.

The Divine Divas are iconic performers of the first generation of Brazilian transvestite artists in the 1960s. One of the first venues that gave shelter to men dressed as women was Rival Theatre, directed by Américo Leal, the grandfather of the film director. The film brings to the scene the intimacy, talent and stories of a generation that revolutionized sexual behavior and challenged the moral of a country.
