WHAT'S MY NAME | MUHAMMAD ALI

Documentary, Sports
Muhammad Ali’s incredible life has become the stuff of American legend. From his incomparable athletic career and change-making social activism to his larger-than-life personality—was there ever a character more suited for the big screen? Many have told his story over the years, but with Antoine Fuqua’s comprehensive, two-part documentary, Ali finally tells it in his own words.

Utilizing an all-archival approach—including some never-before-seen-or-heard material—What’s My Name is a stunning achievement in documentary filmmaking. From the highest achievements on an international stage to the most intimate personal moments, new depths of character are revealed of one of the most well known figures in modern history as Fuqua immerses the viewer in one of the biggest lives ever lived.
