An intricate tale of “medicine, monopoly and malice ”, Fire in the Blood tells the story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments aggressively blocked access to affordable AIDS drugs for the countries of Africa and the global south in the years after 1996 - causing ten million or more unnecessary deaths. It is also the inspiring story of the improbable group of people who decided to fight back. Shot on four continents and including contributions from global figures such as President Bill Clinton, Bishop Desmond Tutu and economist Joseph S tiglitz, FIRE IN THE BLOOD is the never-before-told true story of the coalition which came together to stop 'the Crime of the Century' and save millions of lives. As the film makes clear, this story is by no means over. With dramatic past victories having given way to serious setbacks engineered far from public view, the real fight for access to life-saving medicine is really just beginning.
