Bob Marley

The first official documentary on legendary Reggae singer, Bob Marley has finally been introduced to the masses as it delves into different, unknown aspects of the Jamaican star.

Marley debuted at the Berlin International Film Festival in Germany this past Sunday as fans and various members of the film industry gained a first look at the most anticipated music documentary of its time. The feature film, directed by Academy Award winning director, Kevin Macdonald features never before seen clips of Marley, on and off-stage, turning a 13 month long shoot into a 2 ½ hour long documentary. It features several interview with Marley’s family, friends, fans and over 50 songs of the iconic singer’s music, as well as 10 songs from other Reggae artistes.

Many surprising facts about the Reggae icon are unveiled in Marley. For instance, it’s revealed that Bob Marley used to work in a Delaware-based hotel and factory in the United States, during his younger days. Additionally, the movie touches on Marley’s rocky relationship with his white father’s family; exhibiting emotional pain caused as a result of their undermining him.

Marley also features Bob Marley’s wife, Rita Marley talking about their relationship; turning her husband from just an ordinary spouse into a “guardian angel.” There’s also mention of Marley’s many baby mothers during his career, something Rita Marley accepted throughout their marriage but daughter, Cedella deeply admonishes; harboring resentment towardsmany of those women.

Speaking during the documentary’s premiere Fellow Marley offspring, Rohan Marley recalls a time when he and his brother, Stephen Marley played outside their Kingston home with their father, before two poor boys came by, asking to join them. When Rohan and Stephen refused, electing to spend alone time with their father, Bob came over and offered the boys ice cream; forcing his sons to watch them eat it as a life lesson.

According to Rohan Marley, “We may call him Daddy, but we’re just one of the many.”

Marley details parts of Bob Marley’s societal involvements, including the tense Jamaican political scene of the 1970s while also taking a look at several of the Reggae superstar’s concerts worldwide; showcasing the impact his music had universally.

Marley will debut across U.S. theatres on April 20. Macdonald acquired full film and music rights to the film, with the blessing of Bob Marley’s family. Additionally, American music station, VH1, through its Rock Docs series, gained full rights to broadcast Marley on television.
