BPM (BEATS PER MINUTE)
Directed By Robin Campillo
Early 1990s. With AIDS having already claimed countless lives for nearly ten years, Act up-Paris activists multiply actions to fight general indifference. Nathan, a newcomer to the group, has his world shaken up by Sean, a radical militant, who throws his last bits of strength into the struggle.
FRENCH W/ENGLISH SUBTITLES
"A restless, engrossing dramatic portrait of Parisian activists fighting the AIDS pandemic in the early 1990s."
-JUSTIN CHANG, LOS ANGELES TIMES
"Here, as characters hit the streets for demonstrations, hit the discos to relax and hit the skids when they get sick, you're there with them, pulse pounding out more beats per minute than you might have thought possible."
-BOB MONDELLO, NPR
"A wrenching love story, set in Paris in the early 1990s, told against the background of ACT-UP AIDS activists fighting for their lives. Ron Campillo's raw and riveting film musters the emotional power to floor you."
-PETER TRAVERS, ROLLING STONE
