Now, director, Jeffrey Schwartz looks back at the man and the ways in which LGBT represenation has changed over time. In the aftermath of Stonewall, a newly politicized Vito Russo found his voice as a gay activist and critic of LGBT representation in the media. This documentary is about his life as an activist, an academic and a cinephile.
