Oscar® winning director Kevin Macdonald's triumphant documentary is the definitive life story of reggae legend Bob Marley.

Rare footage and incredible performances are combined with revelatory interviews from the people who knew him best to tell his story from his childhood, to his rise to international superstardom and his death from cancer aged 36. Much more than a simple biography, it examines his religious convictions, political ideals and his relationships as well as his music.

An incredibly detailed look at a towering figure of musical and social history whose music and message continues to resonate to this day.
