Watch The Chilling Trailer For "How To Survive A Plague"

The documentary, directed by David France, captures the story of the brave young men and women who successfully reversed the tide of an epidemic, demanded the attention of a fearful nation and stopped AIDS from becoming a death sentence. The movie opens in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco on Friday, September 21, with a national release to follow.

In addition to the trailer release, ACT UP co-founding member Vincent William Gagliostro is calling on fans to submit their artwork inspired by the art & activism of ACT UP, TAG, and GRAN FURY. Submissions will be featured on the film’s official Tumblr: surviveaplague.tumblr.com.
