BPM (Beats Per Minute)

Friday, Jan 26 - Sunday, Jan 28, 2018

In Paris in the early 1990s, a group of activists goes to battle for those stricken with HIV/AIDS, taking on sluggish government agencies and major pharmaceutical companies with bold, invasive actions. The organization is ACT UP, and its members, many of them gay and HIV-positive, embrace their mission with a literal life-or-death urgency. Robin Campillo’s film captures this moment in BPM. “Sexy, insightful, and profoundly humane. [A] heart-bursting group portrait.”—Guy Lodge, Variety.
