Product Description

DirectorJeffrey Schwarz

From Gay Essential

The 2011 biographical documentary Vito, directed by Jeffrey Schwarz, is the story of the AIDS activist, author, and father of the modern gay liberation movement Vito Russo. Russo came to prominence as an outspoken critic of the media treatment of the LGBT community post-Stonewall riots.

“Incisive and illuminating, this warm tribute to a key figure of the gay rights movement is both intimate and historically expansive.”
   The Hollywood Reporter

“Vito Russo never stopped fighting, even when AIDS was making its final assault on his body. Whenever he could, he would appear, frail but unbowed, at rallies and demonstrations.”
   SF Gate

“He was the original “friend of Dorothy” and spent the better part of a decade diving deeper into film archives to pinpoint and chronicle the history of gay characters and themes in the movies — subliminal or otherwise.”
   The Washington Post
