It’s Paris in the 90’s, ACT UP - a vibrant group of young social activists - are taking on government apathy and demanding large scale action against the AIDS crisis. At the centre of it all is Sean, a radical young protester, who catches the eye of the group’s shy newcomer, Nathan. Amongst fierce debates, fiery protests and ecstatic dance parties, Sean and Nathan’s passion sparks against the looming shadow of mortality.

A bright and bold film with powerful themes of social justice that remain urgent today. 120 BPM perfectly balances its deeply emotional drama with euphoric, youthful energy and spine-tingling sensuality.
