Premiered April 14, 2014 About the Film The Trials of Muhammad Ali
explores the extraordinary and complex life of the legendary athlete
outside the boxing ring. From joining the controversial Nation of Islam
and changing his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali, from his
refusal to serve in the Vietnam War in the name of protesting racial
inequality to his global humanitarian work, Ali remains an inspiring
and controversial figure.
Focusing on some of the most noteworthy and provocative aspects of the
legendary athlete's life, the film explores his lifelong journey of
spiritual transformation. From his Louisville roots through his years
in exile to receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Ali's path was
that of poet to pariah to global ambassador for peace.
In 1964, when the 22-year-old Olympic gold medalist won his first
heavyweight championship, he shouted, "I shook up the world!" But his
earthshaking had only begun. Soon he announced he had become a Muslim
with a new name: Muhammad Ali.
In 1967, after being denied conscientious objector status, Ali refused
military induction. Convicted of draft evasion, he was sentenced to
five years in prison and his passport was revoked. Stripped of his
title and banned from boxing, Ali faced an American public enraged by
his opposition to the Vietnam War and unwilling to accept his
conversion to Islam. Vilified in many corners at home, he became an
international symbol of opposition to an unjust war.
Filing round after round of legal appeals all the way to the Supreme
Court, he supported his family via a nationwide speaking tour across a
country divided over the war abroad and racism at home. Rare archival
footage of Ali's fiery speeches on college campuses and heated
exchanges during TV appearances show him fearlessly speaking his mind
as he fights for freedom.
Archival scenes highlight the forces that supported and opposed him,
including his spiritual mentors, Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad, and
critics of his stance, such as Jackie Robinson and Joe Louis. Most of
the interviewees have never been featured in any Ali film before, yet
are central to his life story and the global impact he had. Interviews
shot exclusively for the film include his brother, Rahman; his former
wife, Khalilah Camacho-Ali; New York Times writer Robert Lipsyte; and
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. What emerges is the hidden
history and a complex portrait of Muhammad Ali.
The Filmmaker Bill Siegel has more than 20 years of experience in
documentary filmmaking and education. He co-directed the Academy
Award-nominated documentary The Weather Underground; was a researcher
on the films Muhammad Ali: The Whole Story and Hoop Dreams; and a
writer on One Love, a documentary on the cultural history of basketball
by Leon Gast (When We Were Kings). Siegel is Vice President of School
Programs for the Great Books Foundation, a non-profit educational
organization dedicated to literacy and lifelong learning.
