Directors Rex Miller and Sam Pollard explore the enduring legacy of tennis legend and humanitarian Arthur Ashe in Citizen Ashe, an elegant and poignant feature documentary. The film charts Ashe’s personal evolution from Grand Slam champion to global activist against a tumultuous backdrop that included the civil rights movement, South African apartheid, and the AIDS epidemic.
“The life of the tennis player Arthur Ashe (who died in 1993) provides numerous compelling stories, and this unfussy documentary by Rex Miller and Sam Pollard does them justice.” – London Times
