I Am Ali

We've seen the life of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali given the feature film treatment with Will Smith as the iconic athlete, but now we get a much better look at the man behind the gloves and outside of the ring in a new documentary. The producers of the Academy Award-winning documentary Searching for Sugarman are back with I Am Ali, which paints an intimate and heart-warming look at the man behind the legend. Complete with interviews from his closest family and friends and plenty of notable boxers, this isn't just a chronicle of Ali as a fighter, but also a portait of him as a husband, brother and father. Watch the trailer!

Here's the first trailer for Clare Lewins' I Am Ali from Focus World:

I Am Ali marks the feature directorial debut of Clare Lewins, and the documentary paints an intimate and heart-warming look at the man behind the legend that was Muhammad Ali. The profile unfolds with exclusive, unprecedented access to Ali’s personal archive of ‘audio journals’ combined with touching interviews and testimonials from his inner circle of family and friends, including his daughters, son, ex-wife and brother, plus legends of the boxing community including Mike Tyson, George Foreman and Gene Kilroy. Focus World releases the documentary on VOD and in limited theaters this fall on October 10th.

    The KING! Still Ali was kind of a racist ass hole. I love the WE WERE KINGS doc.

      yah and you know this because of all of the time you spent around him. you don't understand the word "racist" and should probably move on to talking about how Marvel and DC aren't doing what you think they should do
      • DAVIDPD
        Notice I said was. You can find footage of Ali speaking at KKK rallies, preaching how whites should stay with white people and blacks with black people. He also treated his rival Joe Frazier like a lower black man, comparing him to a gorilla in promotions. If that ain't racist I don't know what is.
        • MrKuel
          so your qualifications as an expert on racism and Ali are based on clips you saw on the internet? yah you should stick to comic book movie talk
          • DAVIDPD
            You should try to actually do some research. I am a fan of Ali. But he was a racist in his youth. I do not know him, but I have seen how he treated his competition. I would recommend checking out WE WERE KINGS.
  • I watched Ali fights on TV at the age of 3, 4, and 5. Even then, I thought: will there ever be a greater heavyweight champion than this man? So far, no.
