BEST NARRATIVE FILM Ann Arbor Film Festival

AWARDS

Edinburgh Film Festival

Based on Lesléa Newman's story "A Letter to Harvey Milk," this award-winning short examines the sensitive issues that surface when Harry Weinberg, an older Jewish man, enrolls in a creative writing class taught by a lesbian.

For one assignment, Harry writes a letter to his former customer and friend, the slain gay political activist, Harvey Milk. The letter unleashes a series of events which impel Marvin, Harry's best friend, to painfully recall and reveal a tragic incident that occurred in a concentration camp forty years earlier.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

"Yariv Kohn's film is quietly powerful... a touching work told with sensitivity, humanity, and surprises."
- Richard Friedman, University of California, San Dieg
