In this clip from Thursday's edition of "Charlie Rose" on PBS, Pulitzer Prize winner (and Oscar nominee this year for "Lincoln") Tony Kushner praised David France's Oscar-nominated documentary How to Survive a Plague while discussing the legacy of his Angels in America. Click below to watch the interview!

HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE is the story of two coalitions-ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group)-whose activism and innovation turned AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable condition. Despite having no scientific training, these self-made activists infiltrated the pharmaceutical industry and helped identify promising new drugs, moving them from experimental trials to patients in record time. With unfettered access to a treasure trove of never-before-seen archival footage from the 1980s and '90s, filmmaker David France puts the viewer smack in the middle of the controversial actions, the heated meetings, the heartbreaking failures, and the exultant breakthroughs of heroes in the making.
