November 27, 2013

Program Locations:

Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, South Court Auditorium

 

UNITED IN ANGER: A HISTORY OF ACT UP combines startling archival footage (mostly from the NYPL AIDS Activist Video Collection) that puts the audience on the ground with the activists and the insightful interviews from the ACT UP Oral History Project to explore ACT UP (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) from a grassroots perspective – how a small group of men and women of all races and classes, came together to change the world and save each other’s lives.

Part of the Why We Fight Film Series curated by Jim Hubbard, director and co-producer of United in Anger: A History of ACT UP, who co-directs the ACT UP Oral History Project, and co-founded MIX - the New York Queer Experimental Film Festival. The film series focuses on films about HIV/AIDS and activism that are in or drawing on the Library’s collections.
