Filmmaker David France tracks the efforts made by activist groups ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) to convince the government and the pharmaceutical industry to speed up human trials of experimental drugs that ease the suffering of HIV/AIDS patients. Thanks to their tireless efforts, HIV/AIDS would eventually become a manageable condition, rather than a death sentence.~Jason Buchanan
Commentary with director David France and ACT UP activists Heidi Dorow, Joy Episalla, Bob Lederer and Ron Medley
How to Fight a Plague is a documentary about a group of people with AIDS and their advocates fighting for equality and healthcare. It is a very touching documentary that gives you an intimate view of the 80's and 90's AIDS crisis in America. I recommend it.
