FILM: I AM ALI
Time to re-engage with ‘The Greatest’ in his own voice
Claire Lewin’s archive rich documentary brings the times and legend of Muhammad Ali’s life in full vitality.
Muhammad Ali obsessively kept audio and video journals with his kids for them to listen to when they’re older. These astonishing previously unseen archives enrich I Am Ali along with accounts from his family, friends and fellow boxers.
A flawed but extraordinary figure of the 20th Century his own words weave throughout, including news footage from Wembley, entering the ring in a crown. “I hear you got a Queen but you ain’t got no King” is one many brilliant moments that cover his life from Gold at the Olympics to his very last fight and beyond.
Rarely screened in cinemas, so don’t miss out!
