Cinema Politica UofT - United in Anger: A History of Act Up

 

**United in Anger: A History of Act Up**

A small group of men and women of all races and classes, came together to change the world and save each other’s lives. Meetings, affinity groups, and approaches to civil disobedience mingled with profound grief, sexiness, and the incredible energy of ACT UP. More detailed description and trailer: http://www.cinemapolitica.org/film/united-anger-history-act

 

**Stick around for a discussion about queer activism following the screening.**

CINEMA POLITICA UofT - http://www.cinemapolitica.org/uoft
Cinema Politica UofT is an initiative of the Graduate Students' Union, University of Toronto. We screen films that challenge conventional narratives and that explore under-represented stories. Our film screenings aim to engage students and the community in critical issues surrounding equity and environmental justice. We seek to accomplish this by following each screening with a discussion about how the content of the film relates to our own experiences and what action we can take collectively.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
