QUOTES:
 

"One of the 25 Best Films of The Year"
—A.O. Scott, NYTimes


"Served powerfully, with minimal adornment... A moving and meticulous documentary about AIDS activism in the late ''80s and early ''90s"
—A.O. Scott, NYTimes


"A model for the here and now of how social change occurs."
—Frank Bruni, NYTimes


"The currents of rage, fear, fiery determination and finally triumph that crackle through David France''s inspiring documentary, HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE, lend this history of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power a scorching electrical charge."
—xxx


"I sat down to watch HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE, a new documentary about the history of the AIDS epidemic, expecting to cry, and cry I did...I expected to be angry. Here, too, I wasn''t disappointed. What I didn''t expect was how much hope I would feel. How much comfort. While the movie vividly chronicles the wages of bigotry and neglect, it even more vividly chronicles how much society can budge when the people exhorting it to are united and determined and smart and right. The fight in us eclipses the sloth and surrender, and the good really does outweigh the bad. That''s a takeaway of HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE and that''s a takeaway of the AIDS crisis as well."
—Frank Bruni, NYTimes


"One of the Top 10 Movies of the Year"
—David Edelstein, New York Magazine
"Riveting...moving and essential."
—Bruce Diones, The New Yorker


"Words like ''important'' and ''inspiring'' tend too often to be meaninglessly attached to non-fiction filmmaking, but in the case of David France''s compelling snapshot of a revolutionary period in AIDS treatment, they are amply justified... An epic celebration of heroism and tenacity, and less directly, a useful template for any fledgling activist movement, demonstrating the effectiveness of inside/outside strategy."
—David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter


"Even if you lived through this era, went to protests, wept over the AIDS quilt and believed yourself aware, director David France''s assured, seamless directorial debut, rich with archival footage, will teach you something about courage, dedication and the power of well-directed anger."
—Mary Pols, Time Magazine


"...Former Newsweek writer David France artfully recounts the history of the activist group ''ACT UP''--whose iconic logo was SILENCE=DEATH--in his masterly film HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE."
—David Ansen, Newsweek


"...Quickens the pulse like a thriller and rouses passions as well as any drama."
—Entertainment Weekly


"Rigorous, impassioned, and powerful-as-hell."
—Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly


"As this stirring, scrupulous doc reveals, the members of ACT UP fused the fervor of revolutionaries, the tenacity of trial lawyers, and the rage of the dispossessed to change the very shape of the epidemic. In doing so, they found hope where there had been only death..."
—Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly


"What saved the day was the stubborn persistence of its members, together with the scientific breakthroughs that led to protease inhibitors and combination therapies. Those new tools restored many near-corpses to life and cut the number of AIDS-related deaths in New York by a staggering 50 percent...Occupy movements, take note."
—Ella Taylor, NPR


"One of the ten best movies of 2012...If its essence could be bottled, David France''s fierce, heartbreaking documentary about the very early days of AIDS activism could serve as a tonic for demoralized political organizers, a bracing reminder that change is possible when a group of committed people come together to fight injustice, indifference, and prejudice...don''t miss this cathartic, inspiring film."
—Dana Stevens, Slate


 

The story of two coalitions -- ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) -- whose activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition.

User Reviews
A moving and insightful documentary
by Patryk Czekaj (Warsaw)
How to Survive a Plague is definitely one of the year''s most awe-inspiring, riveting, go-into- action documentaries. Through a mightily informative combination of recent interviews and archival footage the film exhibits a noteworthy fight against both ignorance and indifference towards such a deadly epidemic as the one caused by the HIV virus. This is also a serious, heartfelt, touching depiction of a movement that was ready to change something, even if it meant sacrificing a few soldiers along the way. And yes, the word ''soldiers'' is perfectly suitable when it comes to all those young people who devoted their whole lives to a global, far-reaching cause.

Year by year, How to Survive a Plague presents a through and insightful look at the actions that propelled the LGBT activists in some of their most tragic days. Undeniably, the story behind such coalitions as Act Up and TAG are exhilarating ones. Even though the then-deadly virus already infected many of those young people, they still didn''t lose faith in the cause and decided to stand up against the government and its reluctance to help those in need. Lead by a few charismatic and devoted individuals Act Up changed to course of history and it''s definitely not an exaggeration. By making the whole world aware of the seriousness of this ferocious AIDS plague the activists made the world a place friendly for all inhabitants of this planet, no matter their sexual orientation or skin color.

How to Survive a Plague is a clever, intriguing and fortifying documentary. Every scene of the film matters, every voice raised is a significant one. Decidedly so, the interviews shine a new light on the past events presented in the archival footage, and their coming together combines for a valuable film experience.
