This film examines the life and work of one of the world’s most beloved storytellers, following his evolution from a conservative son of the Old South, into a gay rights pioneer whose novels (Tales of the City) have inspired millions to claim their own truth. This documentary moves nimbly between playful and poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. Maupin offers a disarmingly frank look at the journey that took him from the jungles of Vietnam to the bath houses of 1970’s San Francisco to the front line of the American culture war.
