“I want to challenge artists to deal with AIDS in whatever form they want—but to do it in a way that reveals what their stake is, to do it in a way that doesn’t pose as objectivism, that doesn’t pose as removed for any academic reasons of aestheticism. To honestly deal with what is at stake for them in the AIDS crisis.”—Gregg Bordowitz

A collection of shorts by artists associated with ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power), including Jean Carlomusto & Maria Maggenti’s documentation of the first AIDS demonstration focused on women, Zoe Leonard’s somber exploration of the graffiti at a popular cruising spot, and Gregg Bordowitz’s essay film about his identity as both an AIDS activist and a person living with the disease.
