Raw for Showtime. Feature Documentary

A major feature documentary chronicling the rise and fall of one of the most vilified and misunderstood sportsmen of all time.

 

Despite overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds to win the heavyweight title, then the most prestigious honour in world sport, Sonny became a Pariah: a symbol for all that was wrong with America in the time of civil rights.

Found dead in his Las Vegas home in early 1971, the rumours raged. With so many people wanting Sonny Liston dead, the question was - who got to him first.

Simon was the writer and director.
