*Content warning: sexual content and graphic depictions of the AIDS crisis*

In recognition of World AIDS Day, we’re screening BPM, winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes: A film about love. A film about life. Life stronger than death. A film as a glimpse of hope.

#partynotpanel In lieu of our traditional post-film Q&A, we’re hosting a gathering following the film. Join us after the film for complimentary appies, cash bar and open conversation about the film in a casual setting.

BPM

Robin Campillo | 143 minutes

Reel Causes is proud to present BPM: In Paris in the early 1990s, a group of activists goes to battle for those stricken with HIV/AIDS, taking on sluggish government agencies and major pharmaceutical companies in bold, invasive actions. 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, the newcomer Nathan falls in love with Sean, the group’s radical firebrand, and their passion sparks against the shadow of mortality as the activists fight for a breakthrough.


The Causes

Dr. Peter Centre

The Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises funds to support innovative health care at the Dr. Peter Centre in Metro Vancouver. The Dr. Peter Centre is British Columbia’s only HIV day health program and 24-hour nursing care residence.

The only program of its kind in Canada, the Dr. Peter Centre is a leader in HIV care, particularly for individuals with multiple medical conditions and social barriers.

Positive Living BC

Positive Living BC is dedicated to empowering persons living with HIV/AIDS through mutual support and collective action. Uniquely among major agencies in Canada, the Positive Living BC Board of Directors is composed entirely of HIV-positive members.

With a membership of more than 5,700 HIV-positive members and a proud history spanning three decades, Positive Living BC is Western Canada’s largest AIDS service organization and an established leader in the HIV/AIDS movement.
