How To Survive A Plague is the story of the activists who stopped AIDS from becoming a death sentence:

This improbable group of activists bucked oppression and, with no scientific training, infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, helping to identify promising new medication and treatments and move them through trials and into drugstores in record time. In the process, they saved their own lives and ended the darkest days of a veritable plague, while virtually emptying AIDS wards in American hospitals in the process.

The documentary is in theaters September 21.

Based on first-time director Justin Simien's own experiences, Dear White People is a satirical look at what it's like to be black on a predominantly white college campus:

The plot centers on "four black students at an Ivy League college where a riot breaks out over a popular 'African American'-themed party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film will explore racial identity in 'post-racial' America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world."

The indie project is just 31 days and $25,000 from the big screen.

This epidemic of rape within the U.S. military is exposed in The Invisible War, an "incendiary" new investigative documentary from Academy Award-nominated director Kirby Dick.
