The documentary before the biopic...made with the support of the Marley family and featuring rare footage, incredible performances and revelatory interviews

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.

From his childhood in Jamaica to the prophet of the oppressed, Marley follows one of the world’s most influential musicians with unheard tracks, never-before-seen footage, and intimate interviews with his family, friends, and colleagues. From Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald 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 made its world premiere at the Berlin Film festival,  followed by its North American premiere at SXSW.
