Growing up in Miami, the de facto capital of the Caribbean, you're exposed to Bob's music and legacy at an early age. Patty shops on Flagler Street play the deep cuts from Catch a Fire, while the sounds of Kaya waft off yachts moored at Dinner Key. And, if you're a certain age, you definitely remember the ubiquitous Publix commercial featuring One Love/People Get Ready that aired continuously in the late 1980s. The Marley family has deep roots in South Florida, too, hosting the annual Marley Fest, headed into its 20th year, and keeping Bob's spirit alive through their 1Love foundation.
So when our friends at Magnolia Pictures picked up MARLEY, Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald's (One Day in September, Last King of Scotland) definitive feature documentary about Bob, shortly before its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February, we immediately volunteered to host the Miami premiere.
We're giving away 20 pairs of tickets to the premiere next Monday night, April 9th, at 7 PM at the Colony Theater on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. For your chance to win, fill out the form below (or click here) and we'll contact the winners via email on Friday April 6th.
MARLEY begins an exclusive run at the O Cinema on Friday April 20th.
Bob Marley's universal appeal, impact on music history and role as a social and political prophet is both unique and unparalleled. MARLEY is the definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary, and legend, from his early days to his rise to international superstardom. Made with the support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, incredible performances and revelatory interviews with the people that knew him best.
From Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald (One Day In September, The Last King of Scotland) comes the story of a towering figure of musical history, whose music and message has transcended different cultures, languages and creeds to resonate around the world today as powerfully as when he was alive.
