Ghost or not, Milk’s words have a power that will linger well into the future.
UPDATE: I met Gus at a party tonight (11.19.08) and asked him about the ghost story. He repeated it exactly as above, but it’s just kind of a casual story. Take it for what it is. Everyone has their own mythologies and you’re free to think what you think. It has nothing to do with marketing. I respect the memory of Harvey Milk wholeheartedly. I’m sure Van Sant does too. Milk’s words are beautiful to listen to and should inspire anyone who listens to them. The short film about the camera is beautiful Jenni, and no doubt, though it’s a set, you’ve captured it authentically. Nice work.
