Django REST Cross Domain Request to Download a File

So I am trying to download a file via Django REST (referred to as the Back End from now on) instance through my web page. The web page and the Back End are currently installed on two different servers so this is a cross domain request.

Now, I have no problem making cross domain requests to any of the other API urls on the Back End, but this one that retrieves the file through a view I am struggling with.

The response comes back with status 200 (OK) and the headers all seem to be set correctly, but no download is forced.

I have tried using Ajax requests and XMLHttpRequests in Javascript but the response just doesnt force a download despite containing the correct Content-disposition header.

Any thoughts would be well appreciated.
