UNITED IN ANGER: A History of ACT UP
directed by Jim Hubbard (90 min, USA, 2012)
In a few short years during the 1980s, AIDS grew from obscurity to an epidemic, decimating LGBT communities across the globe. Turning rage into action, women and men came together to save their own lives and formed ACT UP (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power). These activists fought against corporate greed and government inaction by calling public attention to the rapidly escalating death toll with a mix of indignation, humor, and sex appeal. Using rare footage and interviews, this powerful film takes you through the birth of ACT UP and honors early heroes on the front lines of the ongoing battle against AIDS.
Following the screening, stay for a community discussion on the early days of the AIDS pandemic with Jay Craver and Tony Radovich.
