A shocking exposé of how pharmaceutical companies use patent law to keep
profits unconscionably high even at the expense of peoples’ lives, and a
plea for universal access to affordable, life-saving generic medicines.  An
intricate tale of “medicine, monopoly and malice”, FIRE IN THE BLOOD tells
the story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments
aggressively blocked access to affordable AIDS drugs for the countries of
Africa and the global south in the years after 1996 - causing ten million
or more unnecessary deaths.  It is also the inspiring story of the
improbable group of people who decided to fight back.  Shot on four
continents and including contributions from global figures such as
President Bill Clinton, Bishop Desmond Tutu and economist Joseph Stiglitz,
FIRE IN THE BLOOD is the never-before-told true story of the remarkable
coalition which came together to stop 'the Crime of the Century' and save
millions of lives. Directed by Dylan Mohan Gray
