Life of legendary Jamaican artist is explored in first documentary made with consent of his family.

    His songs can still be heard around the world, and his face is seen on shirts and posters almost everywhere. In fact, more than 30 years after his death, the appeal of reggae super-star Bob Marley continues to grow.

    A new documentary on Marley celebrates the music and the message of one of the first stars to come out of the developing world.
