“In the early 1990s, with AIDS having already claimed countless lives for nearly ten years, Act up-Paris activists multiply actions to fight general indifference. 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” (Cannes Film Festival screening notes). Winner of the 2017 Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival. Courtesy of The Orchard.
