    They learned how to play tennis in one of America’s most dangerous ghettos... became world n°1 and world n°2 in singles and forged an unparalleled record. As African-American women, who are sculptural and powerful, and embody new codes, the Williams sisters navigated through sexism and racism, became world icons, and changed tennis forever.

    A New York summer night. An overheated stadium full of people. The stands are packed, feverish, eyes focused on a face in tears. That of Serena Williams, in the middle of the court, as she bids farewell to the world of tennis after a record-breaking career  In her speech to the crowd, the greatest player of all time, choked with sobs, addressed her 15-month older sister, Venus: "I wouldn't be Serena if it wasn't  for Venus. So, thank you Venus. She's the only reason  that Serena Williams ever existed." From the stands, Venus is looking at her little sister, as she has always done since they started playing.
     
    With this sentence, Serena sealed her destiny to that of her older sister. Serena, 40, and Venus, 41, have dominated the world of tennis for many years, breaking all records, building an unparalleled record of success... and breaking the color barrier in the sport and in an America plagued by racism. Born into a poor African-American family, cradled in the culture of the ghetto, and fed on their father's mantras of confidence and nerve, Serena and Venus landed like two UFOs in the muffled world of tennis. The two teenagers would challenge the entire system with the freshness of their youth and an acute awareness of their strength. As both sculptural and powerful Black women, self-confident, displaying codes that were never seen before, they would crystallize the divisions tearing American society apart. But together, they overcame the sexist, classist and racist remarks, the broncas of the public, the mistrust of the other players, the contempt of tournament organizers, the sarcastic and biased comments of journalists. United, they would not only bring women's tennis into the modern world, but would also become global icons.

    This first and only real portrait of the man that Malcolm X called the most important black personality of our time. An iconic movie for which Klein was accepted into Ali's entourage and was able to film during the most critical weeks of his career. Unique images that are now legendary.

    In 1964, Cassius Clay becomes heavy-weight champion of the world and declares his name is Muhammad Ali. A date in sports history and a turning point in black awareness.

    It was a searing look into boxing, into the Southern power structure, inside the Black Muslims. Muhammad Ali explodes on the scene constantly catching America off guard, the first black champion to declare himself free. Eventually, it cost him his title, 3 years enforced retirement, and many millions of dollars.

    Muhammad Ali, an aging 32 year-old, who no longer Floats-like-a-Butterfly-and-Stings-like-a-Bee, no longer a revolutionary figure but nostalgia, wants his title back, or, at least, one last big pay check and he shall fight the terrifying Foreman.
    And at all odds, this is the end of the most extraordinary sports career of all time.
    October 31, 5:30am, Kinshasa, Zaïre. Ali stands triumphant over Foreman, bewildered and K.O How did Ali, underdog, ex-martyr, become once again an all-time hero, champion and legend ?

    No wonder then that the gyms start looking like factories: where workers slave away in an assembly line where they have become their own product. Bodybuilding originates from the industrial era and heralds the post-human age.
