‘Fire in the Blood’ in Grand Jury Price Race at Sundance Film Festival

Fire in the Blood, All Lights Film Magazine, ALFM

 

Fire in the Blood’ the Indian documentary directed by Mumbai-based Indian-Canadian filmmaker Dylan Mohan and produced by Sparkwater India, Mumbai has been selected for the World Cinema Documentary Competition at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, to be held on January 17-23 in Park City, Utah, USA, and thus nominated for the coveted Grand Jury Prize. It is a unique achievement for an Indian film to be selected for this competitive section at what is considered to be the world's leading showcase for independent cinema.

Fire in the Blood 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 – causing ten million or more unnecessary deaths – and the improbable group of people who decided to fight back.

Shot on four continents and including contributions from global figures such as Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu and Joseph Stiglitz, Fire in the Blood 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. As the film makes clear, however, this story is by no means over. With dramatic past victories having given way to serious setbacks engineered far from public view, the real fight for access to life-saving medicine is almost certainly just beginning. Sundance received a record 12,146 submissions this year, among which were over 4000 feature-length films. From these, just 12 U.S. and 12 international films were selected for competition.

Fire in the Blood will be released in Picture house and other select cinemas around the UK and Ireland on February 22nd, 2013, in partnership with Dartmouth Films. This will be an unprecedented British theatrical release for an Indian independent or documentary film. Theatrical release in India is tentatively planned for April 5th, 2013.
