The fight against HIV/AIDS would never be the same. An HBO Documentary Films release.
After the Screening: Stay for a conversation with special guests Dr. Mathilde Krim, global health consultant and activist Regan Hofmann and amfAR CEO Kevin Robert Frost to discuss the new strides medicine has taken in AIDS research development. Moderated by amfAR chairman Kenneth Cole.
