The Times of Harvey Milk

The film was produced after Milk’s death using original interviews, exclusive documentary footage, news reports, and archival footage, so that Milk is credited as the lead (posthumously). Other politicians including San Francisco mayor George Moscone (who was assassinated with Milk), and Moscone’s successor and now United States Senator Dianne Feinstein appear in archival footage. The movie opens with a tearful Feinstein delivering her announcement to the media that Moscone and Milk had been assassinated by Dan White.

Also featured in the film is then-schoolteacher Tom Ammiano, who has been a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors since 1994, and was recently elected to the California State Assembly.

The film was narrated by Harvey Fierstein with an original score by Mark Isham.

The film was directed by Rob Epstein and produced Richard Schmiechen. Richard Schmiechen died from AIDS several years after the completion of the film.
