Filmmaker Dylan Gray and advocate James Love discuss how Western pharmaceutical companies use patent law to keep drug prices high, at the expense of human lives around the world. Love is featured in Gray’s new documentary “Fire in the Blood,” which explores how the blockade of medications like low-cost AIDS drugs in the developing world caused millions of avoidable deaths, a problem that continues to this day. "Fire in the Blood" is playing at IFC Center September 6.
