Synopsis:

MARLEY is the definitive film about a true international icon of the 20th Century. His music and message of love and redemption are known throughout the world and his story has finally been brought to life in this definitive work by the acclaimed talent of Kevin Macdonald. Filming took place as far afield as Ghana, Japan and the UK, in addition to Bob’s beloved Jamaica and the USA and marks the first time ever his family has authorized the use of their own private archives. Macdonald joined with the Marley family, Chris Blackwell and Steve Bing to direct the ultimate, authorized documentary film on the life, legacy and global impact of a legend, one of the most influential singers, songwriters, musicians and activists in history. Only a handful of musicians have ever achieved such an impact and Bob Marley, though his life was far too short, stands among them.

MARLEY received its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival followed by its North American premiere at SXSW.
