Still from Fire in the Blood
Two Indian documentaries have been selected to screen in World Cinema Documentary Competition at the Sundance Film Festival 2013.
Fire in the Blood by Dylan Mohan Gray, which previously screened at Doc/Fest Sheffield, will have its North American Premiere at the festival. The film tells the story of how in the late 1990s and early 2000s, western governments and pharmaceutical companies blocked low-cost antiretroviral drugs from reaching AIDS stricken Africa–causing 10 million or more unnecessary deaths–and the improbable group of people who decided to fight back.
Salma (United Kingdom, India) directed by Kim Longinotto (Pink Saris) will have its World Premiere at the festival. “When Salma, a young girl in South India, reached puberty, her parents locked her away. Millions of girls all over the world share the same fate. Twenty-five years later, Salma has fought her way back to the outside world. »
