Screened June 9, 2022

The first openly gay man elected to public office in the U.S., Harvey Milk was memorialized by premier documentarian Epstein (Word is OutThe Celluloid Closet, et al.) — thereby coming alive again on-screen to inspire new generations. The film won the Oscar, among other awards, for Best Documentary. Narrated by Harvey Fierstein, the movie tracks Milk’s advocacy with the gay community in his beloved Castro neighborhood of San Francisco, which had become his home after a life in NYC; his platform of equal rights and hope was — and is — a rallying cry.

A film by Rob Epstein
