Synopsis: The 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.
Release Date: TBA 2012
Thoughts: The AIDS epidemic has been covered well in books, movies, and countless documentaries since it was identified in the 80’s. How to Survive a Plague turns its focus to two outspoken organizations that have helped change the public perception of the disease and its effect on the lives of not just the people infected but their families too. Expect a bracing documentary on a war that continues today not just on AIDS but of stereotypes and assumptions.
