See Muhammad Ali at Chicago Humanities Fest

Tickets are now available for the Chicago Humanities Festival special preview of The Trials of Muhammad Ali on Saturday November 10th. Get tickets here.

The event will take place at Harold Washington Library from 10am - 11am. Exclusive clips will be premiered by director/producer Bill Siegel (The Weather Underground) and producer Rachel Pikelny (A Good Man), who will be in discussion with Laura Washington of the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Trials of Muhammad Ali covers Ali's toughest bout, his battle to overturn the five-year prison sentence he received for refusing US military service during the Vietnam War due to his Muslim beliefs. The film is currently being edited by Aaron Wickenden (co-editor of The Interrupters) with a goal of being finished for early 2013.
