To celebrate World AIDS Day, we will be screening How To Survive A Plague followed by a post show Q & A with folks from AIDS Project of the Ozarks. This screening is sponsored by AIDS Project of the Ozarks.
How To Survive A Plague is the untold story of the efforts that turned AIDS into a mostly manageable condition – and the improbable group of young men and women who, with no scientific training, infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, and helped identify promising new compounds, moving them through trials and into drugstores in record time. These drugs saved their lives and ended the darkest days of the epidemic, while virtually emptying AIDS wards in American hospitals. (IFC Films)
