PART OF OUR CINE QUEER SEASON, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH EXETER PRIDE

Exeter Phoenix and Exeter Pride present a celebration of Love, Life and LGBT+ in this new film season.

In the early 90s, with AIDS having already claimed countless lives for nearly a decade, activist group ACT UP take their actions to another level in order to fight general indifference.

Nathan, a newcomer to the group soon learns that some members prefer a more radical approach to their protests, and finds his world shaken by a militant activist, Sean.

120 BPM is an exhilarating and moving film that offers an engrossing look at a pivotal period in history.

‘BPM is vital for the history it depicts, but it’s also important in the here and now, as a testament to public action – even messy, not-always-effective public action’
