Fascinating, especially having grown up in this period. I remember when AIDS was seen as a death sentence and seemingly every day there were more headlines about it. This film shows how through turbulent efforts the various groups that sprouted up were able to advance research and advocacy. Really captures the period well. Not a he said/she said balanced documentary but excellent at what it does.
