Documents the political career of Harvey Milk, San Francisco’s first openly gay supervisor, his rise from a neighborhood activist to a symbol of gay political achievement, through to his assassination in November 1978 at San Francisco’s city hall, and the Dan White trial and aftermath.
Made long before Gus Van Sant’s acclaimed biopic, but only 6 years after Milk’s murder, this documentary builds on TV footage and interviews to trace the life of the activist. A historical document bearing witness to the simultaneous liberalization and rampant homophobia of 1970s San Francisco.
