Join Downtown Community Television on April 3rd for their screening of The Trials of Muhammad Ali. The film investigates its extraordinary and often complex subject’s life outside the boxing ring. From joining the controversial Nation of Islam and changing his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali, to his refusal to serve in the Vietnam War in the name of protesting racial inequality, to his global humanitarian work, Muhammad Ali remains an inspiring and controversial figure. Outspoken and passionate in his beliefs, Ali found himself in the center of America’s controversies over race, religion, and war. From Kartemquin Films – makers of such acclaimed documentaries as Hoop Dreams and The Interrupters – and Academy Award-nominated director Bill Siegel (The Weather Underground), The Trials of Muhammad Ali examines how one of the most celebrated sports champions of the 20th century risked his fame and fortune to follow his faith and conscience.
Following the screening will be a Q&A with Academy Award-nominated Director Bill Siegel. This awesome event is free and there will be Brooklyn beers for sipping.

On Wednesday, March 26, DCTV partners with Dirty Looks NYC for a rare screening of prolific German filmmaker Ulrike Ottinger’s epic media studies fever dream, Dorian Gray in the Mirror of the Yellow Press.
This would be Ottinger’s last entirely fictional feature of the 1980s, and is also the final film in Ottinger’s Berlin trilogy, in which a “stylized composition provides a sightseeing trip through Berlin,” that is, at once, fictional and phantasmagorical, yet also wholly documentary in its depiction of the city’s architecture and underground milieu.
$8 Suggested Donation and Brooklyn beer will be available.
