This is the first trailer for Marley, which is a documentary on Bob Marley by Kevin Macdonald. What makes this documentary different is that it has the support of Bob Marley’s family and friends, and they have interviews featured in the doc. Personally, I do not know much about much about Bob Marley outside of his songs, so this could be an enlightening doc to see.
“Bob Marley’s universal appeal, impact on music history and role as a social and political prophet is both unique and unparalleled. MARLEY is the definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary, and legend, from his early days to his rise to international superstardom. Made with the support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, incredible performances and revelatory interviews with the people that knew him best.
From Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald (One Day In September, The Last King of Scotland) comes the story of a towering figure of musical history, whose music and message has transcended different cultures, languages and creeds to resonate around the world today as powerfully as when he was alive.”
Marley will have its North American premiere at SXSW next month followed by a VOD and theatrical release on April 20, 2012.
