    ‘Africa Unite’, a film highlighting the music of international reggae star, Robert ‘Bob’ Marley will be featured at the 25th annual Miami International Film Festival, which will be staged from February 28 to March 9. The film will be screened on Tuesday (March 4), at the Gusman Theatre in downtown Miami.
    Almost two hours long, the documentary film captures footage of the 12-hour concert in Ethiopia in 2005, that celebrated Bob Marley’s 60th birthday and features performances by several international stars, including reggae greats, Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths, Bob Andy and several of the Marley children.
    Directed by US film director, Stephanie Black, the film also features musical renditions from the varied selections by the international recording artiste and depicts the coming together of people from across the globe to share ideas and cultures to unite Africa.
    ‘Africa Unite’ is among the 169 films selected for this year’s anniversary event from more than 60 countries, and include a wide range of features and short movies, world premieres and international films.
    Last year’s screenings included ‘No Place Like Home’, a film produced by the late Jamaican director, Perry Henzell, who also produced the famous Jamaican movie ‘The Harder They Come’.
