Fire In The Blood

Preview by Jack Foley

NETWORK Releasing is proud to announce that an award-winning and critically acclaimed documentary looking at HIV and AIDS activism is to be released on DVD in March 2014.

Fire In The Blood, directed by Dylan Mohan Gray, will be released on DVD on March 24, 2014, ahead of the BFI London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, which runs from March 20-30, 2014.

Fire In The Blood is a critically-acclaimed documentary of medicine, monopoly and malice that 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 in the years after 1996. The film investigates how this caused over ten million unnecessary deaths and the improbable group of people who decided to fight back.

Fire In The Blood was shot on four continents and tells its remarkable story through the eyes of AIDS patients, front-line clinicians, radical health professionals, pharmaceutical company executives and global figures including Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu and Joseph Stiglitz.

It 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.

The film screened at Sundance Film Festival (2013 Grand Jury Prize nominee – World Cinema Documentary) and its message is clear: despite dramatic past victories, the fight for access to life-saving medicine is almost certainly just beginning.

Winner of the 2013 DOXA Feature Documentary Award, 2013 Justice Matters Award at the 27th Washington DC International Film Festival, the inaugural Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Prize for Political Film, and Best Debut Film of a Director at the Mumbai International Film Festival, Fire In The Blood has gained critical and audience praise across the globe.
