Excitement builds for our Muhammad Ali doc

Ahead of a sneak preview and discussion at the Chicago Humanities Festival on November 10th, Kartemquin's next release The Trials of Muhammad Ali is already generating buzz, possibly based on the launch of its Twitter account. IndieWIRE's Shadow & Act blog, already a fan our our work, said the film looked to be "yet another enthralling feature documentary." Due for release in 2013, The Trials of Muhammad Ali is about Ali's "fight not to fight" - the period in mid-1960's when he refused enlistment in the US Army during the Vietnam War due to his strong Islamic religious beliefs.
