Bob Marley’s universal appeal, impact on music history, and role as a social and political prophet is both unique and unparalleled. The documentary Marley offers the definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary, legend, and the man, from his early days to his rise to international superstardom. Made with the support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, never before seen performances, previously unreleased music, and revelatory interviews with the people that knew him best.

Bob Marley: The Giant, is a short documentary by Ben Churchill about Dennis Morris, photographer for Jamaican reggae singer-songwriter Bob Marley during the 1970s, tells the stories behind many of his iconic images of the musician taken at concerts, backstage, and between shows.
