When death is star­ing you in the face, it has a sober­ing ef­fect. This film by David France looks at how a group of young HIV-pos­i­tive men and women coped with the knowl­edge of their own mor­tal­ity and what they did about it.

France de­scribes it as “a story about ac­tivism shot by ac­tivists” and it is har­row­ing and in­for­ma­tive, pro­vid­ing a de­tailed but abridged ac­count gath­ered through more than 800 hours of archival footage of the sci­en­tific bat­tle against AIDS and the plight of those suf­fer­ing from the deadly dis­ease.
