Description

Minnesota Cinematic Arts Award Honoree Producer Sarah Pillsbury Attending

Based on the best-selling non-fiction book by Randy Shilts, And the Band Played On is a striking account of the AIDS epidemic, from its inception, the government’s tepid response, and to the activism and pioneering efforts to contain the disease and care for its victims. Originally broadcast on HBO, And the Band Played On was such a popular and critical success it was screened in theaters around the world and re-broadcast on NBC a year later. “[T]ough and uncommonly courageous television.” —The New York Times
