Marley (2012)

Bob Marley Documentary

A few days ago, we brought you Life in a Day and it was a huge hit! That movie was directed by Kevin Macdonald. Now, Kevin Macdonald goes from a movie about the entire planet to a movie about just one man: Bob Marley aka Tuff Gong.

The video uses archival footage of Tuff Gong that has never been seen before. Even the most die-hard fan will learn from this movie about their mentor. Tuff Gong’s own sons – who were deeply involved – came away changed men.

Ziggy Marley said that he learned a lot about his father. “There was a lot of stuff that we didn’t know,” he said. Especially about his early years in Trenchtown.

The Marley family gave Kevin Macdonald full access to their archives. They felt that he was the right man for the job and are extremely happy with the end product.

Tuff Gong was only thirty six when he died – something that seems almost impossible to believe. His songs were so wise, so ahead of their time. Now, we can enjoy him all over again.
