Storyline

An intricate tale of "medicine, monopoly and malice", FIRE IN THE BLOOD tells the story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments blocked access to low-cost AIDS drugs for the countries of the global south in the years after 1996 - causing ten million or more unnecessary 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 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 in the process.

Great film on a really interesting and important story
7 July 2012 | by (Sheffield, England) – See all my reviews

A really great film on a story that needs to be told. It is story of how access to vital, low cost AIDS drugs was actively blocked to people in developing countries in the late 1990s.

The information contained in the film is quite astonishing as you understand the extent of the monopolization on drug patents that resulted in the denial of the rights of thousands of dying people to receive medical treatment from drugs that were not only readily available but could be made affordable.

This excellent film will help ensure the facts are not forgotten and it is far from being a negative production, with the positivity of the people involved in the campaign coming through.
