    Regarded as one of the true and most loved international icons of the 20th century, Bob Marley’s music and message of love and redemption are known throughout the world. His music transcends culture, language and creed and resonates around the world today as powerfully as when he was alive. Only a handful of musicians have ever achieved such an impact, and Bob Marley, though his life was far too short, stands among them.

    “For this film, Bob Marley’s family gave the filmmaker Kevin Macdonald access to countless documents as well as interviewees. In “Marley”, the Oscar-winning director of the documentary “One Day in September” presents archive material, some of which has never been seen before; he also interviews Marley’s fellow musicians, friends, lovers and family members – including several of his twelve children and also his wife, Rita. We also see the man on stage in excerpts from his concerts. Marley’s music was also political, as is evidenced in his love for Africa and the threat on his life that was made during a concert for peace held in Jamaica.” Berlin Film Festival
