Trials of Muhammad Ali world premiere sells out in 2 hours

The world premiere screenings of The Trials of Muhammad Ali at Tribeca Film Festival are sold out. Individual tickets for AmEx card holders went on sale this morning at 9am ET. Despite the festival's website crashing and phone lines being jammed, less than 2 hours later all tickets for the screenings of April 26th and April 27th were completely sold out. We are delighted that there is so much enthusiasm for our next release! The Trials of Muhammad Ali is a Kartemquin documentary exploring Ali’s lifelong journey of spiritual transformation and covers his toughest bout, his battle to overturn a five-year prison sentence for refusing military service during Vietnam, sacrificing fame and fortune on faith and conscience. The film's director Bill Siegel (oscar-nominated for The Weather Underground) will attend at Tribeca, along with many members of the film's team including executive producers Gordon Quinn and Justine Nagan of KTQ, Kat White of KatLei Productions, and Leon Gast (director of When We Were Kings). If you weren't lucky enough to get a ticket for Tribeca but are are in the New Jersey region, perhaps you might try to catch the film at the Montclair Film Festival. The festival, curated by Thom Powers, will show the film on May 5th at 8pm. Tickets are available now! Director Bill Siegel will be attending, and also participating in a superb filmmakers panel on May 5th at 5pm preceding the screening. The panel "Dangerous Docs" is hosted by Michael Moore, and also features Lucy Walker and Dawn Porter. Definitely not one to miss! We look forward to announcing more festival appearances for The Trials of Muhammad Ali very soon! Watch this space and follow the film on Facebook and Twitter.
