I suppose it's only right that Marley, the "definitive" documentary on the life of reggae superstar Bob Marley, will make its non-festival general release world premiere at Emancipation Park, in Kingston, Jamaica, on Thursday, April 19 (a day before Magnolia Pictures will release it in theaters and VOD here in the USA), in a screening event that's FREE and open to the public.

Showing as part of the Marley family's contribution to Jamaica's 50th anniversary Independence celebration, the Marleys (exec producers of the film, allowing use of images and footage from their personal archives for the first time) are expecting a record turnout for the event; audiences can expect to see interviews with family members, friends, lovers and musicians, concert footage, rare recordings, and much more in this comprehensive 2 1/2 hour birth to death documentary. 

I'll be seeing it at the SXSW Film Festival later this week, in Austin, TX.

Watch the trailer below if you haven't already seen it:

    I saw a clip of this documentary about a month or so ago on Cedella Marley's Twitter feed. I was just listening to some Dennis Brown (he was Bob Marley's favorite singer, by the way) and feeling "Boy, I miss JA!"
