Summary:
A look at the history of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people who fought the epidemic on the frontlines. In 1987, a diverse group of 300 men and women rallied to form the radical, messy and extremely effective umbrella of ACT UP and its affinity groups. Through oral histories and archival footage, we observe how the efforts of ACT UP redrew the map of AIDS politics and made it a national issue, despite all the seemingly insurmountable hurdles they faced along the way.
