Africa UniteThe spirit of Bob Marley lives on in this stirring concert documentary.

In February 2005, more than 300,000 people came to Abbis Ababa, Ethiopia, to celebrate what would have been Bob Marley's 60th birthday.

Of course, any self-respecting reggae fan knows that Bob Marley was from Jamaica, not Ethiopia. But Ethiopia was the spiritual birthplace of Rastafarianism, Marley's chosen religion; and therefore it was fitting that three generations of the Marley family would make their first-ever trip to Ethiopia to play the legendary musician's songs onstage.

What resulted was an extraordinary 12- hour concert and weeklong political and musical event, all captured in Stephanie Black's vibrant documentary 'Africa Unite.'

Through concert footage, interviews and rare archival footage of Marley himself, this film pays homage not just to Marley's music but also to his political beliefs, and his hope that "every little thing is gonna be all right."
