A recent Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary, How To Survive A Plague is the story of the young men and women, largely from the LGBTQ+ community, who successfully reversed the tide of the AIDS epidemic, demanded the attention of a fearful nation, and stopped the disease from becoming a death sentence. With no scientific training, these activists infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, identifying promising new medication and treatments and moving them through trials and into drugstores in record time. In the process, they saved their own lives and ended the darkest days of a veritable plague.
Free for ND, SMC, HC, and IUSB students.
