Event Description

Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes, BPM (Beats Per Minute) is a harrowing yet inspiring look back at the activism of French ACT UP protestors during the height of the AIDS crisis in the early 1990s. With the disease having claimed countless lives in the past ten years, the Parisian branch of ACT UP begins to multiply their actions to fight the public’s general indifference to this massive health crisis. Nathan (Arnaud Valois), a newcomer to the group, soon has his world shaken up by the radical militant Sean (Nahuel Perez Biscayart).
