Continuing our highlights of films scheduled to screen at month's Sundance Film Festival, here's a clip from a feature documentary that will compete in the World Cinema Documentary category, titled Fire In Blood, from director Dylan Mohan Gray.

The short story, courtesy of Sundance, goes... 

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Western governments and pharmaceutical companies blocked low-cost antiretroviral drugs from reaching AIDS-stricken Africa, causing 10 million or more unnecessary deaths. An improbable group of people decided to fight back. 

I'm definitely curious to see the full film, and I'm looking forward to Tambay's review of it after he sees it at Sundance next month.

Said to be shot on 4 continents, the work of investigative film journalism includes contributions from the likes of Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu, Joseph Stiglitz, and more. 

It'll be making its North American Premiere at Sundance next month.

Check out the new clip below, released today:
