To honor and reflect upon the recent passing of the legendary Muhammad Ali over the weekend, Kino Lorber is bringing our award-winning The Trials of Muhammad Ali documentary back to theaters. From Friday, June 10 – Tuesday, June 16, theaters in New York (Film Forum), Oakland (New Parkway), New Haven (Bow Tie), and Ali's home town of Louisville, Kentucky (Village 8), will be showing the film that The Nation critic David Zirin called “The best Muhammad Ali doc I’ve ever seen and – dare I say – I’ve seen ‘em all.” Director Bill Siegel will be attending Muhammad Ali's funeral tomorrow at the Muhammad Ali Center, and select screenings at the Village 8 in Louisville. Information about the various showings can be found on the following website and on theaters' pages. More theaters will be added soon. The Trials of Muhammad Ali tells the story of Ali's exile years, spent outside of the ring fighting the US government and racism. Check out the trailer for the film here and learn more from its homepage. You can also stream the film on PBS' Independent Lens until 6/28/16. We hope you enjoy the film and it helps to shed some light on some of the incredible complexities of "The Greatest."
