I got sort of teary-eyed watching this, which was the last thing I expected a documentary trailer to be able to pull off at 6:30 in the morning.  But I Am Ali looks absolutely triumphant in its examination of the life of Muhammad Ali.  I’m not a boxing fan but this is one of those docs that’s about so much more than that.  It’s about perseverance and a life ambitiously lived.

Hit the jump to check out the I Am Ali trailer.  The film was directed by Clare Lewins and was executive produced by Simon Chinn, who helped bring us Searching for Sugar ManI Am Ali features interviews with Ali’s family, Mike Tyson and George Foreman.  Focus will release the film in theaters, Digital HD and On Demand on October 10th.

Here’s the official synopsis for I Am Ali:

From the producers of the award-winning SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN comes an intimate and heart-warming look at the man behind the legend – as we’ve never seen Ali before. I AM ALI is told through exclusive, unprecedented access to Ali’s personal archive of ‘audio journals’ combined with touching interviews and testimonials from his inner circle of family and friends, including his daughters, son, ex-wife and brother, plus legends of the boxing community including Mike Tyson, George Foreman and Gene Kilroy. Experience Ali’s extraordinary story, as a fighter, lover, brother, father- told from the inside for the very first time. Directed by Clare Lewins; Produced by Clare Lewins, George Chignell and Greg Hobden; Executive Produced by John Battsek and Simon Chinn.
