Hey kids, Apologies because I also posted this under nightclubs, but thought it was important. ...Check out this movie about ACT UP & many folks who helped make the world a little safer for your fun... (By the way, do any of you get the feeling, lately, that people don't remember the struggle before, or even understand continuing danger...??)
Jim Hubbard and Sarah Schulman host a tour through their ACT UP Oral History Project film. To date, they have conducted 63 long-format interviews with surviving members of The AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, detailing the strategies and tactics that made the direct action movement so effective.
Thursday, April 14th at 6:30 pm
(3rd Floor, Bobst Library, 70 Washington Square South)
Streaming clips from many other interviews in the film (besides those in the preview airing tomorrow)are now up on the ACT UP Oral History website.
