I Am Ali

Widely regarded as one of the greatest sportsmen of the 20th century, professional boxer Muhammad Ali gained fame and notoriety for his antics inside and out of the ring including his vociferous objection to American involvement in the Vietnam War, which resulted in the loss of his heavyweight boxing title. Documentary filmmaker Clare Lewins delivers an intimate and revealing portrait of Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr, from his formative years to his rise as a counter-cultural figure and international celebrity. The film includes rare access to Ali's personal audio journals and interviews with his friends and family members, including his eldest daughter Maryum, who has fully endorsed Lewins' work as "the best film I've seen about my father".
