Synopsis

The development of political activism on the part of San Francisco homosexuals is the underlying subject of this documentary, which chronicles the political life and assassination of San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, who was killed by colleague Dan White. The then mayor of the city, George Moscone, was also killed. The film documents the murders and the subsequent trial and the resulting effect on the gay community.

Description

Winner of the 1984 Academy Award for best documentary, this is the moving and ultimately life-affirming portrait of the first openly gay man elected to political office in California. Milk's tremendous courage and humanity, as he fought for the civil rights of all people, soars above the prejudices of his day. The film chronicles the successes of his life, the tragedy of his assassination, and the uproar which greeted Dan White's infamous "Twinkie Defense."
