Game Changers: Throughout Black History Month, our popular series pays tribute to Black cultural visionaries who inspire us to push ahead at a time of profound social change.
Oscar winner Kevin MacDonald (Last King of Scotland, One Day in September) delivers the authorized biography of reggae legend Bob Marley, offering an expansive yet intimate history of the larger-than-life artist. The icon is remembered on a personal level through affectionate first-hand accounts as a father, lover and revolutionary, and for his legacy as a passionate and dedicated musician. MacDonald fully immerses us in the singer’s history through beautiful scenes shot on location in Nine Mile and Trenchtown, rare archival interviews and enough concert footage to satisfy even the most devoted fans. Marley is a film that understands why Bob Marley’s influence still resonates with such strength today.
