Rare clips and outtakes filmed by Albert Maysles

2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the Rumble in the Jungle, a historic boxing showdown in Kinshasa that pitted Mohammed Ali against undefeated heavyweight champ George Foreman. The event, bankrolled by Zaire's dictator Mobutu Sese Seko, drew celebrities, musicians, and press from around the world. Filmmaker Albert Maysles was there to film the build-up to the fight, and has generously shared footage from his personal archive for a one-time special screening.

Followed by post-screening discussion with filmmaker Albert Maysles
