Winner of the 2017 Palme d’Or from the International Cinephile Society and the Grand Prix from the Cannes competition, Robin Campillo’s searing epic illustrates the emotional power that tore through the worldwide gay community during the AIDS crisis, but particularly for the activists in Paris. And specifically, for one new activist, Nathan, whose life changes not only because of the crisis, but because of the people involved in the ACT UP movement, who felt strongly about surviving through it.
