Act-Up were in-your-face, out-of-your-comfort-zone, on-the-pavement activists. They not only ruffled feathers, they plucked them out, stripping the chicken, outing the hypocrites, bloodening the hands of the presecutors! So much so, their outright provocation polarised the LGBT community...but, ask yourself - regardless of which side of the fence you stood - where would we be [now] without them?
The Small Town Rage that once consumed the small city of Shreveport has dissipated [by the survivors & paricipants alike] into reflection, reminiscence and remembrance. A film that blooms with respect...blossoms with passion. Deservedly proud, dedicated people tell their stories...the emotion is overwhelming.
To date there have been over 35,000,000 deaths attributed to HIV/AIDS...if Act-Up hadn't acted up, who knows what that terrifying statistic would be now!
Thank you to each and all...who stood [stands], shouted [shouts] and fought [fights]...to repair this broken world.
A mighty fine film.
Small Town Rage: Fighting Back in the Deep South' is an independent documentary examining the work and influence of ACT UP Shreveport in the conservative Deep South.
