Wednesday, July 27- WHEN WE WERE KINGS
A chronicle of the Ali vs. Foreman heavyweight boxing match from 1974 that uses original footage of the “rumble in the jungle” when it took place in Kineshasa, Zaire. The film is on one level a lost documentary: never-before-seen images of the Fight of the Century between a then relatively unpopular, but fearsome, boxer named George Foreman and his nearly mythical antagonist, the incomparable Muhammad Ali. But its also a riveting story of the drama and significance of the beginning of a new age of black culture and identity.
Screened at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival; 1997 Academy Award. Rated PG
