How to Survive a Plague (2012)

Director: David France. Cast: 120 min. Unrated. Documentary.

The story of how homosexuals dealt with the AIDS pandemic, from the early 80s when they were almost denied hospital admissions, to the mid 90s when an acceptable drug treatment was found - while millions died during the struggle. Inspiring documentation of a fight for survival, which will keep you wondering which of these HIV-infected activists will live to see the cure, and make it to the film's final interviews, at old age. Definitely makes one reflect upon one's attitude towards gays.

PS: This is streaming on Netflix.
