"Stirring... fascinating... inspiring."

— Dennis Harvey, Variety

"The best Muhammad Ali doc I've ever seen and - dare I say - I've seen 'em all."

— Dave Zirin, The Nation.

On 4/14 at 10p ET, Independent Lens is hosting its first-ever live online screening of a film simultaneously with its PBS broadcast.

Chat live with the Director of The Trials of Muhammad Ali, Bill Siegel (Kartemquin films, The Weather Underground), and connect beyond the film.

The Trials of Muhammad Ali is a Kartemquin documentary exploring Ali’s lifelong journey of spiritual transformation. From his Louisville roots, through his years in exile, to receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Trials traces 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.
