ATA Gallery's flagship film-exhibition series OTHER CINEMA presents the West Coast theatrical debut of Jim Hubbard and Sarah Schulman's United in Anger, a feature doc about the birth and life of the AIDS activist movement, from the perspective of the people in the trenches fighting the epidemic.
Mixing oral histories of ACT UP members with rare archival footage, and taking the viewer through the planning and execution of a dozen exhilarating major actions, the film depicts the courageous efforts of the direct-action group as it battles corporate greed, social indifference, and government neglect.
Introduced by Cyd Nova, of the local ACT UP chapter, which receives a portion of the proceeds.
