hmv.com talks to Nahuel Pérez Biscayart and Arnaud Valois about new film 120 Beats Per Minute

Robin Campillo's new film tells the story of Parisian HIV activist group ACT UP, whose relentless and often confrontational campaigning in the early 1990s helped raise awareness about the disease, as well as pressuring the drug companies who produced HIV medication to be more open about their drug trials, particularly their use of placebos on live patients (In one of their most famous publicity stunts, the group arranged for a giant pink condom to be placed over the Luxor Obelisk in the French capital).

Campillo's emotive story hits DVD shelves on Monday (June 4th), but ahead of the release of 120 Beats Per Minute, we caught up with its leading actors Nahuel Pérez Biscayart and Arnaud Valois to talk about bringing ACT UP's story to the big screen.
