Marley is an extensive new documentary on the life and times of Bob Marley. Nearly everyone whoever worked with the reggae legend is interviewed in the film directed by Kevin Macdonald, who won a best documentary Oscar for his 1999 film One Day in September.
The film debuted at SXSW last month, and while anyone who’s ever listened to music is familiar with Marley’s sound, you might not know as much about the work he did to hold Jamaica together during a time of political unrest. That part of the story, as well as the vivid depiction of Jamaica then and now, make Marley a must-see for serious music fans.
The film opens locally on April 20, but you’re in luck – we’ve got passes to giveaway to a special advance screening of the movie on Thursday night at 7 at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas. All you have to do is print out a pass and get there early – seating is first come, first served, and these things fill up.
