Congrats to How to Survive a Plague, nominated for Best Documentary at the Academy Awards! How to Survive a Plague is an unflinching and powerfully moving look at how the activists behind groups like ACT UP forced the medical establishment into action following its tragically stunted response to the HIV/AIDS crisis.

FREE SCREENING + Q&A with Director Jim Hubbard of UNITED IN ANGER: A HISTORY OF ACT UP on Friday, December 7 @ 7:30 PM at the Bronx Documentary Center

The Bronx Documentary Center in New York City is hosting a free screening of United in Anger: A History of ACT UP on December 7 at 7:30 PM! The film, a documentary about the birth and life of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people in the trenches fighting the AIDS epidemic, will be followed by a Q&A session with its editor, Ali Cotterill, and its director, Jim Hubbard. You can RSVP for the event at events@bronxdoc.org

"UNITED IN ANGER: A HISTORY OF ACT UP is the first feature-length documentary about how ACT UP (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power), a small group of men and women of all races and classes, came together to change the world and save each other’s lives. The film takes the viewer through the planning and execution of a dozen exhilarating major actions including Seize Control of the FDA, Stop the Church, and Day of Desperation, with a timeline of many of the other zaps and actions that forced the U.S. government and mainstream media to deal with the AIDS crisis. UNITED IN ANGER reveals the group’s complex culture – meetings, affinity groups, and approaches to civil disobedience mingle with profound grief, sexiness, and the incredible energy of ACT UP."
