Based on the remarkable true story of a family whose unwavering resolve and unconditional belief ultimately delivers two of the world’s greatest sports legends , KING RICHARD (2021) stars Will Smith in the title role. Through their Will & Jada Smith Family Foundation, Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith– a Trustee of the American Film Institute – have been invaluable supporters of AFI’s mission, largely focusing their efforts on AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women, the longest-running program dedicated to supporting women and gender nonbinary narrative directors. Directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, KING RICHARD features cinematography by Robert Elswit (AFI Class of 1977).
