We hope you can join us for one of over 35 screenings from November 29 through December 7 in New York, Boston, Paris, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Vancouver and many more locations.

United in Anger is a 93-minute 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, 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 provides a jumping off point to discuss past, present, future.  Download the Resource Guide and Wisdom in Being United in Anger ‘zine from our website.
