Richmond Film Society – screening of ‘ 120 BPM (Beats Per Minute)' (France) at 8:00pm on 14 May

The film focuses upon the ‘Act Up’ group, who lobbied for legislation, research and treatment to combat the global pandemic and perceived government indifference. It meshes the political with the personal to powerful effect, featuring a romance between two of the members, whilst also reflecting the tension and infighting within the group, with some advocating disruptive and angry protest and others a more conservative approach, fearing that radical action would undermine their message.

Summed up by The Guardian as a “modern classic”, ‘120 BPM’ won 47 awards worldwide, including six Césars and the ‘Grand Prix’ at Cannes.

Members go free. Non-member tickets are £5 (full-time students £3) and can be purchased in advance from The Exchange’s Box Office (in person or by telephone on 020 8240 2399) or online are also available on the night (cash only).
