Thanks to everyone who came out for Saturday’s screening of IFC‘s How to Survive A Plague (@SurviveAPlague). The film and Q & A felt extremely important and prescient with the current state of affairs. AIDS is still very much a problem as illuminated by the films director David France, CEO of (RED) Charity (@joinred) Deborah Dugan (@debdugan), and the surprise guest Peter Staley (@PeterStaley), who was a main subject in the film and a founding member of ACT UP (@actuporg) in 1987. The film will be released limited starting September 21, 2012.
