  • An eccentric documentation of the activist interventions at the 5th International Conference on AIDS in Montreal, 1989. A conservative CBC narrator sets the pretentious tone of the conference proceedings, but is eventually kidnapped by AIDS activists who take over her broadcast. Interviews with international grassroots activists and people living with AIDS from Thailand, Trinidad, Canada, the United States, South Africa, and Australia, are interspersed with demonstrations focusing on women s issues, testing, and an international bill of rights for people with AIDS.
