Part of our LGBT International Film Talk Series!

Winner of the Grand Prix at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

In the early 1990s, with AIDS having already claimed countless lives for nearly 10 years, ACT UP Paris activists multiply actions to fight general indifference. Nathan, a newcomer to the group, has his world shaken up by Sean, a radical militant, who throws the last bits of strength into the struggle.

Presented in French with English subtitles.
