Abstract:  The documentary Brothers in Blood is an exploration of the lives of three Brazilian brothers who counted on each other in their fight for survival. Betinho was a social scientist and activist exiled to Toronto in the 1970's. When he returned to Brazil he was the founder of many campaigns against hunger. In 1995 he was nominated for the Nobel Prize. Hentil, a cartoonist fought for the return of those in exile during the military dictatorship. Chico Maria was a pioneer of independent music and composer of songs against torture. All three were haemophiliacs infected with HIV during blood transfusions. This documentary traces the story of the brothers who in their individual way helped Brazil become the worldwide reference point in the fight against AIDS.
