who covered AIDS from its beginnings. France’s first film, it was
dedicated it 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

that many of them would die. The film, which opened in select theatres
