A meeting with 120 BPM's Robin Campillo

By Rosslyn Hyams

In this week's Cinefile, Rosslyn Hyams speaks to the star of the film 120 Battements par Minute, 120 BPM, Nahuel Perez Biscayat. French filmmaker Robin Campillo directed him, along with Arnaud Valois, in his award-winner at Cannes this year.

120 BPM is a reminder about the NGO struggle for political action to raise awareness and to speed up drug licences when the AIDS epidemic was at its peak thirty years ago. We also take a look at RFI English service's film pick of the month The Nile Hilton Incident directed by Sweden's Tarek Saleh.
