Ireland 2012 | Documentary | 144 mins | English
Directed by Kevin MacDonald
Our apologies for being unable to show this film. We had attempted months ago to contact the distributors for permission to screen it for the people of McLeod Ganj, but they never responded. The holders of the "exploitation rights" of Marley have now at the last minute determined that Bob Marley's "movement of Jah people" among the people of McLeod Ganj, should not be shared with the people.
