Sundance Selects has unveiled the teaser for David France's "How To Survive a Plague," which they are releasing this September. 

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to intense acclaim, and has a few more stops on the festival circuit this summer before its theatrical release (including the Provincetown International Film Festival this weekend). A chronicle of AIDS activism in New York, the film shows how a group of men and women fought against a homophobic establishment to help bring life-saving drugs to America. It's a remarkable part of American history that too few are aware of, and one that comes to theaters exactly 25 years after ACT UP (AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power) -- the activist group at the core of "Plague" -- held its first demonstration.

Check out Indiewire's interview with the team behind the film here, and watch the teaser below. Sundance Selects will release a full trailer later this summer.
