discrimination

In an interview, Ali uses the term 'n****r' in a condemnatory context. The term 'coloured' is also used, reflecting the period. There are multiple visual and verbal references to racism, including racist violence, in the context of the US civil rights movement of the 1960s.

injury detail

A black-and-white still image shows the corpses of women, children and babies in the aftermath of the My Lai massacre. Other corpses are seen in the context of the Vietnam War, and historical assassinations. In a photograph taken in the aftermath of the Detroit race riots, a Black man is shown heavily bloodied.


There is mild sporting violence in archive footage of boxing matches. There are fleeting references to drugs and sexual violence. Bad language is very mild ('ass', 'damn', 'hell', 'butt').
