2013 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary Feature, How to Survive a Plague is the story of two coalitions—ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group)—whose activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition. Despite having no scientific training, these self-made activists infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and helped identify promising new drugs, moving them from experimental trials to patients in record time. With unfettered access to a treasure trove of never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and '90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer smack in the middle of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of heroes in the making.


This screening is part of the 2013 St. Olaf College Social Science Conference. This year's conference is titled "Health and Inequality: Social Determinants of Health."

Start: Feb 21 2013 7:00 pm
