In the mid-1990s, the development of new antiretroviral drugs meant that HIV/AIDS was no longer an automatic death sentence, but only if those afflicted lived in the developed world and had substantial financial means at their disposal. FIRE IN THE BLOOD exposes the strategies by which Big Pharma protected its patents and its profits, leaving an estimated 10 million in Africa alone to die for lack of treatment. This is the story of those who chose to fight back. In English, Hindi, Manipuri, and Xhosa with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)
