UCLA Film & Television Archive presents “Archive Documentary Spotlight.”

The Times of Harvey Milk (1984)
Directed by Robert Epstein

The Academy Award-winning film that documents the life and assassination of San Francisco’s first openly gay city supervisor makes clear from its title that Harvey Milk’s era is as much the subject as Milk himself. Director Rob Epstein’s superb documentary compellingly relates Milk’s life story, inscribing the martyred supervisor’s catalytic effect as the locus of a broader energy, which continues until today.
