“This raw and riveting film musters the emotional power to floor you.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

The award-winning French drama, BPM (Beats Per Minute) follows a group of activists in early 1990s Paris who go to extraordinary lengths in their battle to force the French government to address the AIDS epidemic. The organization is ACT UP, and its members, many of them gay and HIV-positive, embrace their mission with a literal life-or-death urgency.

Amid rallies, protests, fierce debates and ecstatic dance parties, shy newcomer Nathan (Arnaud Valois) falls in love with flamboyantly outspoken Sean (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart), the group’s radical firebrand, and their passion sparks against the shadow of mortality as the activists fight for a breakthrough. Funny, erotic, heartbreaking and inspiring, BPM (its title taken from electronic dance music lingo) hums with richly detailed life as writer/director Robin Campillo (Eastern Boys) crafts a candid and compelling look at this tumultuous historical moment in the early gay rights movement. Winner of four awards at the Cannes Film Festival, including the Grand Jury Prize, BPM is France’s Official Selection for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award.
