Currently playing in select theaters and On Demand, I Am Ali comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on November 11 via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Directed and by Clare Lewins, I Am Ali (PG, 112 minutes) spotlights boxing’s biggest icon through a series of archival footage, audio journals collected by his children, and interviews with Muhammad Ali’s intimates.
During the I Am Ali roundtables, I asked Clare Lewins about the film’s Blu-ray and DVD release. Although she did not confirm that it will be on the disc, she did mention a wonderful interview she had with actor/singer Kris Kristofferson that was left off I Am Ali’s final cut.
Hopefully the Kristofferson footage will be featured on the Blu-ray and DVD release, but nonetheless I Am Ali is a first rate documentary that gives a closer look at the pugilist’s immense love for his family (his daughters Maryum and Hana are among the children interviewed in the doc).
