How to Survive a Plague-Drive In

June 8 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

How to Survive a Plague

In the late 1980s, AIDS activists battle hostility and indifference to bring attention to the disease and try to reduce the number of victims while hoping to lead the drive to find a cure.

This 2012 documentary film about the early years of the AIDS epidemic, and the efforts of activist groups ACT UP and TAG was directed by David France, a journalist who covered AIDS from its beginnings. France’s first film, it was dedicated to his partner Doug Gould who died of AIDS-related pneumonia in 1992. The documentary was produced using more than 700 hours of archived footage which included news coverage, interviews as well as film of demonstrations, meetings and conferences taken by ACT UP members themselves.

How to Survive a Plague is shown in partnership with Westport Pride.
