A documentary about the singer and electric guitar player Bob Marley is to be previewed at the Cannes Film Festival.

The film, which is called Marley, is directed by Kevin McDonald and sees the director travel all across the world to observe the legacy of the renowned reggae musician, whilst also charting the amazing story of his rise to stardom.

The accomplished director, who has received critical acclaim for his films Touching The Void, The Last King of Scotland and the Hollywood remake of the BBC TV show State of Play, travelled to countries like the US, Uganda, India, Japan and Jamaica, which was ancestral home of Marley.

Speaking to BBC Music, McDonald, who has been a fan of the singer since his childhood, said: "My interest, in a large part, is why he speaks so much to people around the world. Why, unlike any other popular musician, his philosophy, his lyrical message continues to resonate with people."

Bob Marley died aged 36 in May 1981 from cancer. It is reported that his last words, which were said this son Ziggy, were: "Money can't buy you life."
