The Society of International Affairs in Gothenburg welcomes you to a free film screening, open for everyone!
United in Anger: A History of ACT UP is an inspiring documentary about the birth and life of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people in the trenches fighting the epidemic. Utilizing oral histories of members of ACT UP, the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, as well as rare archival footage, the film depicts the efforts of ACT UP as it battles corporate greed, social indifference, and government neglect.
The film takes the viewer through the planning and execution of a half dozen major actions including Seize Control of the FDA, Stop the Church, and Day of Desperation, with a timeline of many of the other zaps and actions that forced the U.S. government and mainstream media to deal with the AIDS crisis. The feature-length documentary reveals the group’s complex culture; its meetings, affinity groups, and approaches to civil disobedience.
After the screening you are very welcome to join us in a nearby pub to hang out and discuss the movie.
Free for everyone.
Presented in co-operation with Cinema Politica:
Göteborg, Sprängkullsgatan 25
