"In Case"... the famous assassination tape.

November 28, 2008

The movie "MILK" uses the framing device of Harvey Milk making a tape to be played in the event of his death by assassination. The following short film is called "575 Castro St" directed by Jenni Olson. It has a series of static video shots of Harvey's old camera shop (as it was recreated for  "MILK") with an edited down version of the original 13 minute tape. I had heard of this tape on a few occasions, so I was intrigued when a friend sent me the link to this. You can see the director's notes here.

Thank you,
If I had my way, a transcript of this final speech should be framed and hung in every gay household.....

I would like a transcript, too. For home and church.
