Two filmmakers who directed and produced a 2013 documentary about Muhammad Ali will speak during a free screening of their film on March 20 in Mesa.

The film, “The Trials of Muhammad Ali,” focuses on the life of Ali, including his conversion to Islam, his humanitarian work and his refusal to serve in the Vietnam War. Mesa residents can see the film for free as part of the citys’ community cinema series and ask questions to director Bill Siegel and producer Leon Gast.

The screening begins at 6 p.m. at the Mesa Arts Center, located at 1 E. Main St., and more information is available by visiting
