Visual AIDS observes Day With(out) Art/World AIDS Day, December 1, 2012, with simultaneous screenings -- throughout the U.S. and Canada -- of United in Anger: A History of ACT UP, a film by Jim Hubbard.
United in Anger is a 93-minute documentary about the birth and life of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people in the trenches fighting the epidemic. Utilizing oral histories of members of ACT UP, as well as rare archival footage, the film depicts the efforts of ACT UP as it battles corporate greed, social indifference, and government neglect. The film provides a jumping off point to discuss our past, what is happening now, and what actions are needed into the future.
Confirmed screening partners of the film include over 20 major museums, arts organizations, and Universities including the New Museum, the Museum of Art and Design (both in New York), Concordia (Montreal) and the Warhol Museum (Pittsburg). As part of the distribution, Visual AIDS provides marketing assistance, a resource guide, and assistance in connecting local art institutions and AIDS Service organizations.

Day With(out) Art was launched by Visual AIDS as a World AIDS Day initiative in 1989 as the national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. Visual AIDS uses art to remind the world that AIDS is not over. By distributing the film we hope to provide a low cost programming opportunity for arts organizations and impacted communities to provoke dialogue about HIV/AIDS.
