Paris, early 1990s: with AIDS having already claimed countless lives for nearly ten years, Act Up-Paris takes multiple actions to fight the public’s indifference. This group of young activists is desperately tied to finding the cure for an unknown lethal disease. They target the pharmaceutical labs that are retaining potential cures, and take several direct actions, with the hope of saving their own lives as well as the ones of future generations. Nathan, a newcomer to the group, has his world shaken up by Sean, a radical militant, who throws his last bits of strength into the struggle.
Groups of 8 or more (friends, family, company, school…) can benefit from the AF members price by sending an email to Pauline Jorge, Cultural Programming Manager of the Alliance Française (firstname.lastname@example.org).
