Event Description

A true 20th century trailblazer, Harvey Milk was an outspoken human rights activist and one of the first openly gay U.S. politicians elected to public office; even after his assassination in 1978, his message of hope and equality continues to inspire people around the world. As groundbreaking as its subject, the Oscar-winning The Times of Harvey Milk was one of the first documentaries to address gay life in America, vividly capturing the emergence of queer culture in San Francisco. An exhilarating collage of archival material, Ropert Epstein’s classic film is as much a portrait of a time and place as a testament to the enduring legacy of a political visionary.
