At the Tribeca Film Festival this Sunday, Allen Iverson will get to tell the story of his life and career - in his own words - with the premiere of his self-titled "Iverson" documentary.

Allen Iverson has been immortalized on film before (most notably, ESPN's 30 for 30 offering "No Crossover"), but until "Iverson" - a documentary which will make its world premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival this Sunday - the recently retired point guard had never told the story of his own life in his own words.

The official trailer for "Iverson" was released earlier today, and the clip features exclusive interviews with Larry Brown, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony as well as A.I. himself. The 97-minute film is helmed by first-time director Zatella Beatty - tickets to the screening sold out mere hours after going on sale April 14.

Executive producers for the film include Iverson's longtime manager Gary Moore and Philadelphia native Mike Tollin, best known for his work on "Smallville", "One Tree Hill", and the movie "Summer Catch."
