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 documentary - shocking facts
1 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What I really liked about "Fire in the Blood" is how accessible it is for all audiences and how it can cause a big impact on them.

The (lack of) access to medication is an important and serious issue and how the big pharma companies play with all of us is not something new, but I felt very shocked after watching the documentary.

It has a good pace, profiling people on the area that deserve importance on their work and mainly, presenting shocking and straightforward facts & statistics that seem not be daily covered by our media.

Sometimes it can be easy to simply close our eyes to problems which directly affect millions of people in poor countries... sometimes it can be because we are ignorants about the reality. But once you watch this, believe me, you will want to do something about. And, especially, when you realise that 'you' can also be affected.
