(A Black History Month Special)

The Trials of Muhammad Ali
Bill Siegel, 2013, 92 min.
The Trials of Muhammad Ali, directed by Bill Siegel (The Weather Underground) delves deeply into a time when an emerging sports superhero chooses faith and conscience over fame and fortune. The fury he faced from an American public enraged by Ali's opposition to the Vietnam War and unwilling to accept his conversion to Islam, has global implications for generations now coming of age amidst contemporary fissures involving freedom, faith and military conflict. Archival scenes highlight the life forces who support and oppose him, including his spiritual mentors, Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad, and critics of his stance, such as Jackie Robinson and Joe Louis. Interviews shot exclusively for the film feature those who were there: his brother, Rahaman; his bride, Khalilah Camacho-Ali; New York Times writer, Robert Lipsyte; and Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan. What emerges is the hidden history of Muhammad Ali, an opportunity for audiences worldwide to discover how his journey - toward a full spiritual embrace of Islam and through his humanitarian work around the world - challenges us to overcome today's fissures of race, faith and identity.

Post screening Q&As TBA.
