When We Were Kings (Leon Gast, USA, 1996)


"By portraying the young Ali as hero -- and moving beyond the media image of the poetry-spouting peacock -- Gast reminds us that Ali didn't follow the path of earlier black superstars or earn his stripes by conforming to white society's expectations."          Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle

In tribute to Muhammad Ali, we’re showing arguably the greatest sports documentary of all time. Centred on the 1974 heavyweight championship bout in Zaire between champion George Foreman and underdog challenger Ali this is a must-see.
