Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Festival, and timelier than ever, The Times of Harvey Milk, shown at the 1985 Sundance Film Festival, is a film about American values in conflict. Set in San Francisco in the 1970?s, it tells of the extraordinary rise to power of Harvey Milk, a long-haired gay camera store owner from the Castro District who became one of the city?s most colorful and influential elected officials as well as one of the decade?s most prominent leaders of the lesbian and gay rights movements--that is, until his murder. A moving affirmation and revelation of how one man can make a difference, it is a quintessential documentary work, highlighting a courageous and charismatic individual and exposing and incredible miscarriage of justice.
