The award-winning documentary Fire in the Blood exposes the challenges NGOs, doctors and activists face in their fight against big pharma and patent laws that prevent millions of HIV/AIDS patients in the developing world from accessing lifesaving drugs.
Oscar winner William Hurt narrates the documentary which was shot in eight countries, across four continents.
The film’s contributors include Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu and Nobel laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz, along with key figures in the struggle to get essential HIV/AIDS drugs to countries of the global south.
