HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE is the story of two coalitionsACT 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. With unfettered access to a treasure trove of never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and '90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer smack in the middle of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of heroes in the making.
David France's HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE which The Hollywood Reporter callsa "remarkableepic celebration of heroism and tenacity" bears witness to how a committed group of AIDS activists battling to save their own lives managed to save 6 million others.
