HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE is the story of two coalitions—ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group)—whose activism and innovation were crucial in changing AIDS from a death sentence to a manageable condition. These self-made activists infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and helped identify promising new drugs, moving them from experimental trials to patients in record time. Working with never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and ’90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer in the middle of the controversial actions, heated meetings, heartbreaking failures, and exultant breakthroughs of these heroes in the making.

Join us after the screening for a panel discussion on the film and contemporary HIV/AIDS activism, featuring Melanie Dulfo, MSW, Women and Youth Program Manager at the APICHA Community Health Center; Jim Eigo, artist, writer and activist who is also featured in the film; Monroe France, NYU Assistant Vice President for Student Diversity and Director of the NYU Center for Multicultural Education and Programs; Perry N. Halkitis, Ph.D., M.S., MPH, writer and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the NYU Global Institute of Public Health and Professor of Applied Psychology and Public Health (Steinhardt School), and Population Health (Langone School of Medicine); and Pato Hebert, artist and activist who is Visiting Associate Arts Professor at NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
