BPM: Beats Per Minute

Drama 2h 17m 2017

Aroview: A remarkable and inspiring drama by the director of EASTERN BOYS, set in 1990’s France and following a group of passionate AIDS activists challenging systemic inaction around AIDS prevention research.

Boldly confronting pharmaceutical companies and sluggish government agencies, they fight to hold these organisations to account for censoring and minimizing emerging information about the virus. Based on the true story of the Paris chapter of grassroots political group ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power), the film also tells the moving story of a newcomer who falls in love with the group’s radical firebrand against a backdrop of rallies, protests, fierce debates and ecstatic dance parties.

“A slice-of-life look at a time in history that feels incredibly urgent in today’s torn-up world” ~ Nikola Grozdanovic, The Playlist.
