ali (Mobile)The Trials of Muhammad Ali, the feature documentary from Kartemquin Films (the company behind a few documentaries we’ve covered here on S&A, like The Interrupters and the Bill T Jones profile A Good Man), will make its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next month. As a recap… According to the company, the documentary is actually not a boxing film, as you might expect. The film is directed by Bill Siegel (The Weather Underground) and executive produced by Leon Gast (When We Were Kings) for Kartemquin Films. So, a stellar group behind this project, which they state will show Ali “as a fighter fueled by defiance, faith and a quest for justice,” and which we are looking forward to seeing eventually. And now that it’s premiering in my backyard, I’ll most certainly be checking it out!
