How to Survive a Plague, nominated for Sundance and an Academy Award® for Best Documentary Feature, is the story of two coalitions — ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) — whose activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition. With unfettered access to a treasure trove of never-seen-before archival footage from the 1980s and ’90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer smack in the middle of the controversial actions, heated meetings, heartbreaking failures, and exultant breakthroughs of heroes in the making.
Panel discussion with activists featured in the documentary to follow the screening.
