New Poster For Groundbreaking AIDS Doc “How to Survive a Plague”

A big hit at Sundance, the gripping AIDS documentary How to Survive a Plague is coming to selected theaters in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco on Friday, September 21, with a national release to follow. Above, Sundance Selects has released a new movie poster for the film.

Directed by David France, a journalist at the onset of the crisis, Plague explores the birth of activist groups like ACT UP and TAG as they infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry to help identify promising new treatments and speedily push them through trials and into drugstores. It’s not just an important history lesson—it’s a blueprint for changing the world.

Below, watch a trailer for How to Survive a Plague and Evan Mulvihill’s interview with director France.
