TRIALS OF MUHAMMAD ALI SCREENING TIMES IN NYC


Director in person Fri Aug 23 & Sat Aug 24 for Q&As at the 7:20 pm shows and intros at the 9:30pm shows!

From veteran documentarian Siegel (The Weather Underground), THE TRIALS OF MUHAMMAD ALI examines the explosive crossroadsof the legend’s life. When Cassius Clay became Muhammad Ali, his conversion to Islam and refusal to serve in the Vietnam War left him banned from boxing and facing a five-year prison sentence. Vilified by the establishment but lauded by many, Ali’s choice of belief and conscience over fame and fortune resonated far beyond the boxing ring, raising issues of race, faith and identity that remain as pressing as ever.
