It made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this year, competing in the World Cinema Documentary category, and it now has an official USA theatrical release date, courtesy of International Film Circuit (the distributor of other topical, socially-relevant docs like The Waiting Room, Emmy-winner Where Soldiers Come From, Peabody-winner My Perestroika, The Devil Came on Horseback and the Academy Award-nominated film Darwin's Nightmare). 

The feature documentary is titled Fire In The Blood, from director Dylan Mohan Gray, and is described as an intricate tale of "medicine, monopoly and malice," which follows an improbable group of people who decided to fight back against western governments and pharmaceutical companies that blocked low-cost antiretroviral drugs from reaching AIDS patients in continental Africa, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, causing some 10 million or more unnecessary deaths. 

The film screened at Sundance to strong reviews, and will be released by International Film Circuit on September 6 at IFC Center in NYC, and on September 13 in LA, at Laemmle Music Hall.

Expect a review from me before then.

Shot on 4 continents, the work of investigative film journalism includes contributions from the likes of Bill ClintonDesmond Tutu, Joseph Stiglitz, and more. 

The film's UK release trailer follows below; I'm sure a USA release trailer will be cut:

    The disease is in their so-called medicine. You never hear of anyone dying from aIDS but AIDS related blah blah or complications from AIDS. It was manmade in a laboratory in Africa by the World Health Organization to kill off what the elites call undesirables namely us black folks and gay people.
