Nathan, a young gay Frenchman who is HIV negative, enters an exciting new world of rebellion and activism when he joins ACTUP Paris. It's the early 1990s, AIDS is an epidemic, and the government is mired in inaction. Faced with apathy, intolerance, and greed, he and his new friends take to the streets, schools, and labs to provoke change in France. Soon Nathan begins a passionate new romance with fellow activist, Sean, who is HIV positive.
Directed by Robin Campillo, who drew on his own experiences as a self-described "militant" gay activist, BPM is a powerful story of the French LGBT community that's by turns exhilarating and heartbreaking.
Winner of the prestigious Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival.
