FIRE IN THE BLOOD is a documentary about the spread of HIV and AIDS in the developing world and the part played by major pharmaceutical companies in producing drugs to control the disease.

Disturbing images

The film contains a number of contributions from people who are infected with HIV and AIDS and the cameras show hospital wards in which advanced sufferers are being treated. These scenes include some distressing images of emaciated patients, including a man with sores and lesions visible on his face and body.

Language

The mild bad language consists of occasional uses of the words 'bloody', 'screwed' and 'crappy', none of which are aggressive or directed at anybody.

There is a reference to hard drugs when one of the AIDS victims talks about India's place in the 'Golden Triangle' and how heroin had been a new thing when he was young, leading to an unrestricted exchange of used needles.
