With this bold new drama, acclaimed French filmmaker Robin Campillo depicts the comradeship and tenacity of the gay, HIV-positive men who stormed drug company and government offices in the early 1990s as part of ACT UP in France. Not just a period piece, this film tacitly provides a model of resistance to the forces of destruction running rampant today. (France, 2017, 140 min., NR, French | Dir. Robin Campillo)
