David France says Oscar nominee 'How to Survive a Plague' is already a 'winner'
And how about that Ed Koch?
Q: I feel as though that every couple years they do these polls about the presidents and where they rank among each other in history. And I just feel, as time has gone by, especially with Reagan, his failure to react has been sort of swept under the carpet more and more. I guess my hope is that it sort of swings around and, I don’t know if this documentary will help, but in the future people sort of look back and realize what else did and didn't happen. So, maybe there's a sequel for you there?
One of many powerful protests depicted in David France's "How to Survive a Plague."
Maybe there is.
Q: Maybe there is. Thank you so much for taking the time and congratulations and I hope you have a fantastic time at the Oscars.
Thank you. Every piece of information [I can get] out about this film I think is a part of a campaign to get to keep the issue of AIDS alive. And the incredible thing about it, if we win is to have that incredible platform to remind people of what they need to be reminded of
Q: Absolutely. And the great thing is you will get that platform, you know, in many ways…
No matter what.
"How to Survive a Plague" is still playing in limited release across the country.
