About the Film
United in Anger: A History of ACT UP is an inspiring documentary about the birth and life of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people in the trenches fighting the epidemic. Utilizing oral histories of members of ACT UP, as well as rare archival footage, the film depicts the efforts of ACT UP as it battles corporate greed, social indifference, and government neglect.
A special reception will be held before the screening at 6:15 pm for filmmaker and SFAI alumnus Jim Hubbard.
Due to limited space, we encourage you to preregister online. This event is presented in conjunction with Visual Aid.
