The Times of Harvey Milk
Queer historian, writer, and filmmaker Jenni Olson is codirector of The Bressan Project, which worked with UCLA on the restoration of Arthur J. Bressan Jr.’s Coming Out.
Rob Epstein’s The Times of Harvey Milk is a powerful record of the beloved activist/politician’s inspirational life and work. Through deep archival biographical material and emotion-filled reminiscences of friends and colleagues, Epstein reveals an intimate and complex portrait of the many sides of Milk (including his irreverent sense of humor). From Milk’s improbable, heroic rise to his horrific, senseless murder, Epstein’s work serves as a potent and unwavering eyewitness to history.
