How to Survive a Plague
Documentary • NR • 2012 • 1 hr 49 min
Heartbreaking and raw documentary about people fighting for HIV education and treatment.
A 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. Despite having no scientific training, these self-made activists infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and helped identify promising new drugs, moving them from experimental trials to patients in record time.
