I Just Wanted to be Somebody

Directed by Jay Rosenblatt
10 mins

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, I Just Wanted to Be Somebody transports viewers to the late 1970s and reflects on Bryant’s life and the impact she had. The film is comprised of news footage, commercials, and Bryant’s own home movies.
