This was not an easy film to make.  At first I have to thank Cleve Jones, Anne Kronenberg and all the real life people who shared the story with me. And Gus Van Sant and Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, Josh Brolin, James Franco and our entire cast, my producers Dan Jinks, Bruce Cohen and everyone on the ground of Focus, for taking on a challenge on telling this life saving story.

「MILK / ミルク」の製作は容易ではありませんでした。始めにクリーブ・ジョーンズ、アン・クローネンバーグ、ミルクと過ごした年月を僕に教えてくれた人々に感謝します。そしてガス・ヴァン・サント、ショーン・ペン、エミール・ハーシュ、ジョシュ・ブローリン、ジェームス・フランコ、すべてのキャストメンバー。プロデューサーのダン・ジンクス、ブルース・コーエン、そしてフォーカス映画のすべての人々に。この「人の命を救う」物語を伝えるという難題に挑戦してくれたことに感謝します。

When I was thirteen years old, my beautiful mother and father moved me from conservative Mormon home in San Antonio TX to California. And I heard the story of Harvey Milk.  And it gave me hope. It gave me the hope to live my life, it gave me the hope to one day I can live my life openly as who I am, and maybe even I could fall in love, and one day get married.


I wanna thank my mom, who’s always loved me for who I am even when there was pressure not to.  But most of all, if Harvey had not be taken from us 30 years ago, I think he want me to say, to all of the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told who are less by their churches, by the government, or by their families, that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures of the value.  And no matter anyone tells you God loves you, and very soon I promise you will have equal rights, federally across this nation of ours.


Thank you, and thank you God for giving us Harvey Milk.



I believe it was right after he was elected, he says “Somewhere out there, there’s a kid in San Antonio TX”, which is where I’m from, “who’s gonna hear that a gay man was elected in the public office, and it’s gonna give him hope” and I just went losing it, broke down and cry, because I was very much that kid growing up.


And to hear like him, someone like that saying that “Hey, not only you are OK, but you can do great things. Look at me, I’m sitting at the top of the car and I’m elected to the public office, and there’s nothing that can stop me.”  That’s probably the moment that I thought that, you know, we got to get the story back there to continue this message.
