Dir. Robin Campillo France, 2017, 143 min.
Early 1990s, Paris – activists with the ACT UP group are leading the campaign for greater action to deal with the AIDS epidemic. ACT UP’s methods sometimes prove controversial, but for many of those involved, this is a life-and-death fight. One such activist is Sean, a young radical who strikes up a relationship with newcomer Nathan. Based on writer-director Robin Campillo’s own experiences, 120 BPM overflows with passion. It is a vivid account of an often neglected chapter in modern history and focuses on a struggle that still feels urgent. Campillo recreating ACT UP’s intense struggle, never forgetting the often-devastating human stories behind the politics.
