A massive hit at South By Southwest this year, MARLEY is a documentary that focuses on the legend, life and incredibly powerful music of Bob Marley. The reggae artist turned political and social bard has an appeal that reaches across all boundaries. MARLEY follows the revolutionary musician through his challenging and rewarding life, featuring very rare footage and brand new interviews with those who knew him best. The film is directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald (THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND, STATE OF PLAY, A BRIEF HISTORY OF ERROL MORRIS, TOUCHING THE VOID) and executive produced by Marley's oldest son Ziggy Marley, and it offers intimate and revealing interviews with Ziggy, Rita, Peter and Cedella Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Lee Jaffe, the Wailers and many others.
And now you can see it at the Alamo! The film is playing at Slaughter Lane for a brief period, so be sure to catch it! You can buy tickets here.
"A generous, absorbing, family-authorized docu on the late, still-reigning king of reggae music."--Guy Lodge, VARIETY
"It shows off his chops not by doing anything dazzling - the film is documentary prose, not poetry - but by treating Marley as a man of depth and nuance, of inner light and shadow."--Owen Gleiberman, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
"Every second is earned in Macdonald's long, generous and rigorously detailed Bob doc."--Kevin Harley, TOTAL FILM
