""There is probably no musical artist who has as wide an audience internationally as Bob does," Macdonald says. "You can find people in any country in the world, whether the Arab world or Africa or Asia, who are into Bob. There is this huge built-in audience for people who want to know more about this man whose music speaks to them. And it's a really interesting life story. He lived a rich and eventful life, he died tragically young, and it's a great narrative. The amazing thing about Marley is that he's utterly unique. There is no other superstar in the world of music who came from the Third World -- he's the only one who speaks to the developing world. He's not just a popular musician, he's a philosopher. He's a prophet for them. He's somebody who gives advice and succor in times of need. There's nobody else who's like that. That's why I wanted to make a movie about him, to understand what he was saying and why he was saying it and why it is that the music has this ongoing resonance."" [Hollywood Reporter]MARLEY, made with the full support of the Marley family, "is the definitive life story of Bob Marley: musician, father, believer, husband, revolutionary, legend: from his early days through his rise to international superstardom." Directed by Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald (One Day in September, The Last King of Scotland, State of Play), the documentary, which screened at SXSW this year, is being released on demand and in theaters, including the Sunshine in NYC, on 4/20 (naturally).
You don't need to wait that long to see it though because BrooklynVegan is proud to present a FREE advanced screening of the film at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on Thursday, 4/12, at 7pm (first come, first served). Like our recent screenings of The Island President, Boy, Senna, and Exit Through the Gift Shop, seats are put out in the main/back room of the club where a screen comes down over the stage, and the sound booms out of their concert-ready system. See you there.
