This is a roll of film that comes largely unedited. A few snips to get the lead out. What I love about this moment was capturing the women in the group. I was lucky enough to see the police bringing the troops out the back of the Capital building. So I took my last roll of film and shot.
ACTUP is filled with the most inspirational, intelligent, courageous, politically motivated women I have ever met. This is a moment when we all fought together for our rights and those of others. Dissension between the ranks was not an option on March 28, 1990. And this reel shows multiple action committees coming together to fight for our rights and the rights of others. If you hate the music my apologies. Just turn it off and understand it helps me cut a picture when there's a backbeat. Like Kenneth Anger's Scorpio Rising... insert music here. Sounds good with Cher I'm pretty sure. Sex Pistols too.
Super 8mm, B&W, mostly edited in camera, Canon 514 camera.
