This time there will be films on the late Harvey Milk, the first gay man elected to a major political office in the US.

*The Times of Harvey Milk (1984)*
90min, English
Directed by Rob Epstein

This Oscar award-winning American film documents the political career of Harvey Milk, who was San Francisco’s first openly gay supervisor. The film, at times humorous, at times tragic, documents the rise of Milk from a neighborhood activist to becoming a symbol of gay political achievement, through to his assassination at San Francisco’s city hall, and the Dan White trial and aftermath. The film was produced after Milk’s death using original interviews, exclusive documentary footage, news reports, and archival footage. Other politicians including San Francisco mayor George Moscone (who was assassinated with Milk) appear in archival footage. The film also won the Special Jury Prize at the first Sundance Film Festival, among other awards. (Wikipedia)
