To coincide with Black History Month, Stanley’s Film Club in SE London are screening Bob Marley – The Making of a Legend, a film documenting the early career of the reggae legend, on October 25, from 7pm.
The movie was directed by Gian Godoy and Esther Anderson, both of whom will be attending in person for a Q&A hosted by Dr Michelle Asantewa, in partnership with Black History Walks.
Venue is Holy Innocents, a Grade-II listed gothic church on Selhurst Road, South Norwood.
Based on footage shot in the early 1970s and lost for more than 30 years, NAACP Image Awards winner and actress Esther Anderson takes us on a personal journey to Jamaica to see and hear the young Bob Marley before he was famous. While exploring the relationship between Esther and Marley, the film follows the launch of The Wailers’ international career.
Jamaican food will available for purchase before the film and, subject to licensing, there will be an onsite bar serving beers and wines. Anderson and Godoy will also be taking part in a signing session of limited edition DVDs and original soundtrack CDs.
Tickets £8 advance, £10 door, £5 Stanley’s Film Club members. Can be purchased on the door or online: http://bit.ly/bob-marley-making-of-a-legend
