MEL: ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI Screening

Melbourne

On behalf of Amazon Studios we’re delighted to invite you and your guest to an industry screening of ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI

When: Saturday 13 February
Time: 2.30pm start
Location: The Backlot Studios, 165 Bank Street, South Melbourne

Synopsis: On one incredible night in 1964, four icons of sports, music, and activism gather to 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, 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 upheaval of the 1960s. More than 40 years later, their conversations on racial injustice, religion, and personal responsibility still resonate.

Directed by Regina King.
