120 BPM (Beats Per Minute) is a stirring call to action about the AIDS epidemic of the 80s and early 90s. The film follows a new romance within a chapter of ACT-UP Paris – the activist group battling for those stricken with HIV/AIDS by taking on major pharmaceutical companies and the lacklustre government response with bold, invasive protests. Amid rallies, protests, debates and dance parties, the newcomer Nathan falls in love with Sean, the group’s radical firebrand, as the activists fight for a breakthrough.
120 BPM is out in UK cinemas April 6 2018.
