The landmark Oscar-winning 1984 documentary about Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man elected to political office in California. This stirring portrait features remarkable footage of the charming and inspiring 'Mayor of Castro Street' himself, first-hand evidence that helps one understand how one man managed to inspire and mobilise so many people. This is essential viewing alongside Milk, giving you the full story behind Gus van Sant's new feature film. The first of a short season from directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman in support of our Milk preview.
The Times of Harvey Milk is released on DVD by VivaVerve on 26 January.
Dir Rob Epstein, Jeffrey Friedman, US 1984, 90 mins
