Fire in the Blood

Synopsis
FIRE IN THE BLOOD tells the story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments aggressively blocked access to low-cost AIDS drugs for the countries of Africa and the global south after 1996, causing ten million or more avoidable deaths, and the improbable group of people who decided to fight back. Shot on four continents and including contributions from global figures such as Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu and Joseph Stiglitz, FIRE IN THE BLOOD tells the story of the remarkable coalition which came together to stop and save millions of lives in the process.
