BEST OF THE FEST: BPM (120 battements par minute)

  •   Robin Campillo
  •   France
  •   Best of the Fest, Out-look Competition, World Cinema

Winner of the Chicago International Film Festival’s 2017 Gold Q-Hugo Award.


In 1990s Paris, Act Up activists go to extraordinary lengths to urge the French government to address the AIDS epidemic. Amid the political strife, a tentative romance blossoms between HIV positive Sean and negative Nathan. BPM (its title is taken from electronic dance music lingo) hums with richly detailed life as writer-director Campillo crafts a candid and compelling look at this tumultuous historical moment in the early gay rights movement.
