The UCLA Hammer Museum hosts a screening of the documentary, “United in Anger: A History of ACT UP” on Tuesday, July 2,7 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with producer, writer and historian Sarah Schulman.

Offering a blueprint for aligning fragmented movements, this documentary follows a small group that came together across race, class and gender lines to change the world and save one another’s lives. Archival footage and insightful interviews provide an on-the-ground perspective of ACT UP (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) and its incredibly effective actions, which forced the US government and mainstream media to face the AIDS crisis. 

The screening is free and open to the public, but a general admission ticket is required for entry. Tickets are available one hour before the program at the Box Office.
