Short Film: Doctors Inject HIV Into Little Girl Dying of Cancer in ‘Fire with Fire’

Fire with Fire Short Film GE

Why Watch? The Human immunodeficiency virus might be the very last thing you’d want injected into your body, but for some cancer patients, it’s becoming a last resort that works. 

This short documentary from Ross Kauffman (Born Into Brothels) gives a glimpse into an enormously powerful story where a young girl on the brink of death is saved by something that has killed millions. It’s unorthodox medical thinking, and as short as this doc is, it’s profoundly humbling. Tightly constructed with an immensely compelling subject, this is a tiny fist that lands like an atomic bomb.

What Will It Cost? Just about 3 minutes.
