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.

Everyone should watch this film
24 July 2013 | by h-bysouthSee all my reviews

I watched it with a group of class mates at the end of a nursing course and found that we all had similar reactions - we were horrified. Horrified because of the reality and ashamed we were unaware of the extent of cruelty and inequality amounting to what is called "genocide" in the film.

The clips from the conferences were gripping and the personal experiences of people at the centre from Mr Clinton to the activists was heart warming.

I was particularly impressed by the enterprise in India.

The film made me scrutinise humanity and what it is to be just. It provoked personal reflection and then made me think critically about society and business. It restored my faith in human kind with the individuals who took part in the film - I would recommend it to anyone who considers themselves part of global society.
