In times as trying as these, the art of storytelling is what brings people of all races, faiths, and viewpoints together across the globe. Storytelling creates empathy and a better understanding of our world. The Annapolis Film Festival strives to bring the community together through films that challenge our thinking and change our perspectives. A gift to AFF will help us continue our mission and elevate the films and experiences we can deliver to this community. Thank you for your generosity!
On one incredible night in 1964, four icons of sports, music, and activism gatheredto celebrate one of the biggest upsets in boxing history. When underdog Cassius Clay, soon to be called Muhammad Ali, (Eli Goree), defeats heavy weight champion Sonny Liston at the Miami Convention Hall, Clay memorialized the event with three of his friends: Malcolm X (Kingsley Ben-Adir), Sam Cooke (Leslie Odom Jr.) and Jim Brown (Aldis Hodge).
Based on the award-winning play of the same name, and directed by Regina King, One Night In Miami...is a fictional account inspired by the historic night these four formidable figures spent together. It looks at the struggles these men faced and the vital role they each played in the civil rights movement and cultural upheavalof the 1960s. More than 40 years later, their conversations on racial injustice, religion, and personal responsibility still resonate.
