Summary, etc.:
A singular and masterfully executed film that is at once concert tribute, Marley family travelogue, and humanitarian documentary, AFRICA UNITE ignites the screen with the spirit of world-renowned reggae icon Bob Marley in its every frame. In commemoration of Bob's 60th birthday, AFRICA UNITE is centered on the Marleys' first-time-ever family trip to Ethiopia. There, in the capital city Addis Ababa, three generations of Marleys take part in a landmark one week event including a 12-hour concert like no other, attended by more than 350,000 people from around the world, with the ultimate purpose of inspiring the young generations of Africa to unite for the future of their continent. Features electrifying on-stage performances by the Marley brothers, a soundtrack studded with Bob Marley studio classics, appearances by UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador/actor Danny Glover, world music sensation Angelique Kidjo, and a host of other musicians.
