Discussion with Director Bill Siegel
The Trials of Muhammad Ali explores Ali’s lifelong journey of spiritual transformation. From his Louisville roots, through his years in exile, to receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, you will follow Ali’s path from poet to pariah to global ambassador for peace. At each stage, the challenges Ali faces go far beyond the boxing ring and ultimately encompass issues of power, race, faith, and identity that confront us all. Director Bill Siegel will lead a discussion after the film—a hard-hitting, provocative documentary that was twenty years in the making. Siegel also co-directed The Weather Underground, 2004 Oscar nominee for Best Documentary Film.

Winner of the Best First Film award at the 2013 Cannes Festival.
