“How to Survive a Plague” is a 2013 Oscar nominee for Best Documentary Feature. The film, using never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and ’90s, focuses on the coalition of ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) consisting of young people, many of them HIV-positive young men, who took on Washington and the medical establishment.
