France's 2018 Official Oscar Entry for Best Foreign Language Film

Witness Robin Campillo's vivid, deeply felt portrait of the Act Up-Paris movement in the early 1990s, and the brave young men and women who struggled to make the AIDS epidemic visible to the wider public. Starring rising talents Nahuel Pérez Biscayart (THE AURA), Arnaud Valois (THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN) and Adèle Haenel (THE UNKNOWN GIRL), the film won the Grand Prix at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

Early 1990s. With AIDS having already claimed countless lives for nearly ten years, Act Up-Paris activists multiply actions to fight general indifference. Nathan (Arnaud Valois), a newcomer to the group, has his world shaken up by Sean (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart), a radical militant.

"Broadly enlightening and piercingly intimate. A vital contribution to queer and political cinema. Campillo has given his movie the breath of true life. It grieves and triumphs and haunts with abounding grace and understanding, its heartbeat thumping with genuine, undeniable resonance." - Richard Lawson, VANITY FAIR.
