Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Rastafarian Bob Marley and his Wailers are the highlight of this documentary of the One Love Peace Concert held in Jamaica and featuring many of the other singers who had performed with Marley in Europe, Africa, and America. Just coming out of a series of successful songs and international recognition, Marley is in top shape, though his reggae music, even in 1980, had yet to really catch on in the U.S. Performers include the I-Threes, Peter Tosh, Althea & Donna, and several others. Unfortunately, the technical quality of the documentary is poor, though Marley manages to outshine any such difficulties. Marley's cancer at this time was kept under wraps and is not mentioned in the documentary. He would die the following year in Miami, at the age of 36.
