Come join PIH | Engage to watch “How to Survive a Plague,” a film about the first AIDS activists who turned the disease from a death sentence to a manageable condition. Two coalitions, ACT-UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) and many self-made activists lobbied the pharmaceutical industry to develop and create drugs that reached patients in record time. With never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and ’90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer in the midst of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of the activists.
Thursday, February 20 in the Allen Auditorium (Allen North, 181L). 6-8pm. See you there!
