Description

"BPM is the most authentically queer film of the season."- Jude Dry, IndieWire

"Delivers an absorbing story of AIDS activism through the naturalism of its performances and the nimbleness and fluidity of its editing.”A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"Vital for the history it depicts, but it's also important in the here and now, as a testament to public action - even messy, not-always-effective public action." David Edelstein, Vulture

Nathan is a young man who joins an AIDS activist group in 1990s Paris. As he attends weekly meetings, he learns that some members prefer a more radical approach to their protests.
