Marley, the new documentary from Kevin Macdonald, the director of Touching the Void and Life in a Day, had its US premiere last month at the SXSW Film Festival. Unlike most gems at the fest, though, Macdonald's film about the life and legacy of Bob Marley isn't a ways away from release. Magnolia Pictures are thankfully giving it a limited theatrical and VOD run starting April 20th, and we've got a brand new TV spot to remind you.
For theater listings and dates, check out the film's official site. Or if you're the VOD type, know that it'll be on all the usual streaming movie suspects (Cable, Amazon, iTunes, Vudu etc).
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.
