Ali Bumaye.

In honour of the extraordinary life lived by athlete, activist and cultural icon Muhammad Ali, we are presenting a screening of Leon Gast's phenomenal documentary WHEN WE WERE KINGS on Thursday, June 23 at 7:00 pm. This Oscar-winning film is a fantastic portrait of "The Greatest," and specifically explores his persona through the events leading up to and surrounding the infamous (not to mention controversial) 1974 heavyweight championship fight in Zaire between underdog Ali and the reigning champion, George Foreman. WHEN WE WERE KINGS a lively mix of archival footage, insightful commentary (from both Ali and Foreman, promoter Don King, writers Norman Mailer and George Plimpton, Spike Lee and more), and a solid soundtrack featuring the music of Miriam Makeba, James Brown and B.B. King.
