Times of Harvey : Winner of the 1984 Academy Award for best documentary, this is the moving and ultimately life-affirming portrait of the first openly gay man elected to political office in California. In 1978, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco city council, one year later, he and Mayor George Moscone were shot and killed by Milk's fellow council member, former police officer Dan White. Using original news footage and interviews The Times of Harvey Milk recreates the tumultuous story of Milk's grass-roots political organizing and election, through the shocking murders and their repercussions—from the eloquent candle-light memorial joined by tens of thousands of San Franciscans on the evening of the assassinations, to the angry mobs who stormed City Hall in the aftermath of the lenient sentence Dan White received at his murder trial.
