From Wikipedia: When We Were Kings is a 1996 documentary film directed by Leon Gast about the famous "Rumble in the Jungle" heavyweight championship match between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman. The fight was held in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) on October 30, 1974. The film features a number of celebrities, including James Brown, Jim Brown, B.B. King, Norman Mailer, George Plimpton, Spike Lee and Thomas Hauser. When We Were Kings was released in 1996 to strong reviews, and won the 1996 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. It took Gast 22 years to edit and finance the documentary before it was finally released.

The lesson is perfect in a biography and nonfiction unit. It is still an inspiring film more than 40 years after the fight took place. The film can currently be found on Daily Motion, Vimeo, and topdocumentaryfilms.com for free viewing.
