I JUST WANTED TO BE SOMEBODY

Large_film_12719927_photo1
What do the religious right and the gay liberation movement have in common? Both were fortified by the efforts of one woman: Anita Bryant. Part document and part poem, and composed of news footage, commercials and Bryant's own home movies, I Just Wanted To Be Somebody brings us back to the late 1970s and reflects on Bryant's life and the impact she had on both of these controversial social movements.
