Marley

Marley, a 2012 American documentary, chronicles the life of one of our decade’s most prolific characters; Robert Nesta Marley, better known as “Bob”.   Set to be released in theaters April 20th for limited audiences, Marley is highly anticipated by colleagues and fans alike.

Born in 1945 in Saint Ann Jamaica, Bob Marley was born the English father of white ethnicity and a Jamaican mother of black ethnicity, inciting many questions about his race over his life.  Using his love for music and his country, he honed in on the two most prevalent things in the world; problems and culture.

Using the misfortunes many of the people in his country faced, he created a stellar genre of music popular in America; reggae and Rastafari.  He sang about political and culture problems, and gave a voice to those who didn’t have one.  By garnering the attention of the world through his upbeat attitude and spectacular music, he became a worldwide icon for peace and hope.

Directed by Kevin MacDonald, Marley is unique in that it will feature exclusive material including rare footage held by his family members, never-before-seen performances, as well as unheard interviews.  For a generation that knows the name, this film will help better understand the life behind it.
