Oscar-Nominated 'Plague' Captures Activists' Historic Struggle Against HIV, Society

It's been more than 30 years now since we first heard about AIDS. And it seems almost inconceivable, but the early victims of that terrible disease had to fight for their lives, not only against the killer virus, but against prejudice and indifference.

Back then, a brave group of activists shamed the world into taking notice and taking action. Their story is told in the Oscar-nominated documentary "How to Survive a Plague." Val and Madeleine sit down with the film's director David France.
