Magnolia Pictures will release Academy Award-winner Kevin Macdonald's Bob Marley documentary Marley, on Friday, April 20th, launching day and date on all VOD and digital platforms.

Described as the definitive documentary about legendary musician, from his earliest days, to his rise to international superstardom, the film made its world premiere at the Berlinale, as one of five films selected for the Berlinale Special.

It will next screen at the SXSW Film Festival next month, its North American premiere.

Marley is executive produced by Bob Marley's son Ziggy Marley and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell.

VH1 has come onboard to license the first TV Window of the film as part of their Emmy-Award winning VH1 Rock Doc franchise and will work with Magnolia and the filmmakers to promote the film.

Made with the unprecedented support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, archival photos, and incredible performances and interviews with his family, friends, and bandmates – the people that knew him best.

"This documentary is the ultimate revelation of my father’s life... The family is proud to be able to have the world finally experience this emotional journey," said Ziggy Marley in a statement.

Magnolia has released a new clip from the upcoming film which you can watch below:

    This film is incredible. From Bunny Wailer to fact they manage to find Marley's ex-girlfriend Pascaline Bongo who happened to be daughter of Gabon President. Its truly revelatory. I'll be surprised if it doesn't feature in Bafta/Oscars next year.
