Act Up Fight Back

Just got an email reminding me that the next installment of the Film Love series will take place in a couple of weeks. “Act Up Fight Back: Art and Activism in the Time of AIDS” will have two very different programs. On Wednesday, March 30, there will be a screening at Eyedrum featuring Nino Rodriguez’s Identities, Lawrence Brose’s An Individual Desires Solution, and James Wentzy’s The Ashes Action, among others.

On April 1, there will be a second set of films screened in Emory University’s White Hall. This set includes Jim Hubbard’s Memento Mori, which will be introduced by Hubbard himself. Also featured: ACT UP oral histories and Robert Hiferty’s Stop the Church. Both nights offer exciting programs, and for more information about these screenings be sure to check out series organizer Andy Ditzler’s notes about the films and other local Atlanta film events.

Film Love’s last series, “NOW! Short Films on African American Experience in the 1960s,” was very rewarding, and this film series looks exciting, too.

    Yes, I’ve heard good things about the ACT UP oral histories from some books on documentary I’ve been reading, so very much looking forward to these screenings.
