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. Starring Bob Marley, Ziggy Marley, Cedella Marley, Rita Marley, Neville Bunny, Wailer, Chris Blackwell among others. “I think what’s great about the film is though there have been a lot of things done on Bob, I think this one will give people a more emotional connection to Bob’s life as a man- not just as a reggae legend or a mythical figure, but his life as a man.” -Ziggy Marley.
