The lives of AIDS activists in early 90s Paris are reimagined in bold and vivid detail in 120 BPM, a stunning and heart-wrenching drama from the writer of Palme d’Or winner The Class, Robin Campillo. Based on the director’s own experiences, this vibrant and deeply emotional drama rushes with youthful energy, balancing powerful themes of social justice with euphoric moments of spine-tingling sensuality.
Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes 2017 and a host of international awards, this is an essential work of cinema with a profoundly moving and delicately crafted love story at its heart. Urgent and affecting, it’s a film about life, death, passion, tragedy – and, above all, the will to survive.
After the screening there will be a panel discussion featuring ACT UP activists Ray Malone and Andria E-Mordaunt.
The film is in the French language with English subtitles. Everyman Leeds has full disabled access. For more information please, call the venue on 0871 906 9060.
