How To Survive A Plague: An AIDS and GLBTQ activism film primer
The Other City (2010)
A look at the current state of the still-raging war on AIDS, but this time set in the nation's capital. This film carries its weight in the sheer numbers it presents -- like the fact that decades after the first case of HIV was reported in the U.S. and almost as many years after activism for proper healthcare to treat those infected began, three percent of Washington D.C.'s population is living with it. Pivotal ACT UP member Larry Kramer speaks, as well as politicians, community organizers and those living with AIDS in the current decade.
How To Survive A Plague opens Friday at the Denver FilmCenter. For show times and tickets, visit the theater's website.
