Fire in the Blood
"Brilliant... a real-life David and Goliath story!"
– Zoe Ball, KERMODE AND MAYO’S FILM REVIEW, BBC RADIO 5 LIVE
– Philip French, THE OBSERVER
"Extraordinary... a documentary that’s made like a crime thriller!"
– Samira Ahmed, BBC WORLD
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 low-cost AIDS drugs for the countries of Africa and the global south 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.
