House music broke through in France in 1987, at the same time when AIDS arrived in the country with the first contamination peak in gay and drug addict circles. In 1989, the founders of advocacy group Act Up-Paris knew that the fight against AIDS and triumphant house music should be joined together. From 1992 to 1995, the period covered by Robin Campillo's 2017 film 120 battements par minute (120 Beats per Minute), house reached its most beautiful plateau though techno was also becoming dominant. 120 Beats per Minute, winner of the Grand Prix at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, captures a moment of coming together through clubbing, a moment when fears are forgotten in the dance with what Act Up called "the chosen family." Flooded with light, this is their activist sanctuary. Arnaud Rebotini, who composed the soundtrack of Campillo's 2013 film Eastern Boys, is a recognized DJ and composer. His soundtrack work is marked by his tasteful love for house and techno. With his score for 120 Beats per Minute, he accompanies and supports the images with a process marked by deep respect, including his remix of Bronski Beat's "Smalltown Boy." But this soundtrack is not nostalgic -- it's a modern look at what occurred a long time ago, with the same fascination for synthesizers of that era where the analog was so important. The soundtrack is what balances this film and what justifies such a conceptual title: 120 BPM, the natural rhythm of both house and the heart, the music that kept the people from losing hope. CD version presented in Digipak with four-page booklet; includes four bonus tracks (including Kenlou's remix of Rebotini's "What About This Love").
