With last year marking the 30th anniversary of Harvey Milk’s death I wanted to see this documentary again. This is a wonderful documentary about Milk’s political career and events leading up to his death. Milk was a politician that built a community and it is sad to see someone like him struck down in his prime. This documentary won the 1984 academy award for best documentary. Staff picks 2009
