Documentary film, 'Fire in the Blood', examines how millions have died from AIDS because big pharmaceutical companies and the United States have refused to allow developing nations to import life-saving generic drugs. The problem continues today as the World Trade Organization continues to block the importation of generic drugs in many countries because of a trade deal known as the TRIPS Agreement. The movie's director, Dylan Mohan Gray and Ugandan AIDS doctor Peter Mugyenyi, who was arrested for trying to import generic drugs are interviewed at the Sundance Film Festival where the film played this week.
