Student Health Services is sponsoring a limited number of student tickets to the New Museum's film screening of United in Anger: A History of ACT UP on Saturday, December 1. Only one ticket per student. Tickets are distributed on a first come, first served basis. The ticket also allows you access to the museum itself. To reserve a ticket, email wellness@newschool.edu.

United in Anger: A History of ACT UP is a feature-length documentary about how a small group of people called ACT UP (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) came together to change the world and save each other’s lives. The film takes the viewer through the planning and execution of exhilarating major actions with additional information about these historic events that forced the U.S. government and mainstream media to deal with the AIDS crisis. United in Anger reveals the group’s complex culture while also exploring the profound grief, sexiness, and incredible energy of ACT UP.

Distributed for Day With(out) Art by Visual AIDS. Day Without Art (DWA) began on December 1, 1989, as the national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. In 1997, Visual AIDS added the parentheses to highlight the pro-active programming of art projects by artists living with HIV/AIDS and art about AIDS that were taking place around the world.
