In a new documentary, "How to Survive a Plague," filmmaker David France revisits the in-your-face brand of AIDS activism that forced the nation to pay attention in the early days of the epidemic and eventually convinced the government to speed the approval of life-saving drugs. Ray Suarez speaks with France about why remembering this era in the epidemic remains so important to today's fight.
