Marley movie to screen tomorrow
A film highlighting the life of one of the worlds most beloved reggae stars will premiere at Liberty Theatre tomorrow.
Marley will celebrate the life of musical legend Bob Marley, well known for such hits as Redemption Song and One Love. He died in 1981.
Tickets for the event also allow entry to a cocktail reception and an after-party.
We are doing this because this is a movie about a legend and an icon who went through struggles but paved the way for reggae music, said event organisers Janson Cross and Arthur Smooth Godwin. Also, this movie is a great movie for Bermuda especially in these times. It gives people a chance to relax on a Friday and watch the epic adventure of the great Bob Marley.
Marley was directed by Scottish filmmaker Kevin MacDonald.
In an interview with BBC news, he said: The amazing thing about it is that it is so accessible, his music, and yet it has got all this message — this sense of rebellion and edginess and anti-establishment feeling about it.
Mr MacDonald won an Oscar for his documentary One Day in September, about the murder of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Munich. He said Mr Marley had a unique place in music history, with an appeal that went far beyond his songs.
Marley was made with the support of the Marley family and includes rare footage, incredible performances and revelatory interviews with the people that knew him best.
Bermudanightout.com will host a cocktail reception at Liberty Theatre at 8pm. The movie will follow at 9.30pm. The event continues with an after-party at Shines House of Music and Entertainment featuring Bob Marley hits.
Tickets, $30, be purchased by calling 536-1999 or 705-8275, or from Kit n Kaboodle in the Bermudiana Arcade, or the Liberty Theatre.
The film will continue to screen at Liberty Theatre until May 3.
