REPORTER ZERO

The film tells the story of Randy Shilts, who, at the beginning of the 1980s, was the first journalist to write about the discovery of the AIDS virus. At a time when nobody had yet died of the virus, Shilts’ articles unleashed hefty controversy in the USA, which soon turned into a debate about civil rights, public health and homosexuality.
