Coming to DVD this coming Tuesday, February 26: HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE
David France’s revisitation of the pivotal activism that led to vital AIDS treatments had its world premiere at Sundance last year. A robust festival circuit has followed, including True/False, Silverdocs, New Directors/New Films, San Francisco, and Outfest, among others, in addition to a theatrical release. Having already won the Gotham Award for Best Documentary and the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best First Film, it is one of the five finalists for the Best Documentary Feature Oscar, which will be announced this weekend.
My pre-Sundance profile of the doc may be found here.
