Patent Fever

 

This short work-in-progress documentary takes a fresh look at the controversy surrounding patents and access to medicines in the country hardest hit by HIV: South Africa. Patent Fever documents both the progress on access to treatment and the new under-reported explosion of HIV-TB co-infection that threatens to undermine it. The film draws on previously unseen archive footage and the personal testimony of key players – including Vuyiseka Dubula, the new inspirational head of the Treatment Action Campaign – to narrate the latest twist in the decades long global fight against AIDS.

Check out the trailer for Patent Fever here.

The filmmakers will be present at the gathering and we hope to get discussion going about the issues addressed in the film.
