In the early 90s, with AIDS having already claimed countless lives for nearly a decade, activist group ACT UP takes their actions to another level in order to fight general indifference. The latest film from writer/director Robin Campillo (Les revenants and Eastern Boys) is a potent portrait of resistance fuelled by powerful performances and an incredible sense of time and place. The film was awarded the Grand Prix at Cannes Film Festival 2017.
