Duration: 1 hour
What’s Going On: the Life and Death of Marvin Gaye
Marvin Gaye is one of the great and enduring figures of soul music, but his life was one of sexual confusion, bittersweet success and ultimately death by the hand of his own father. Through Marvin’s own words and intimate memories gathered from rare film and recordings, director Jeremy Marre tells the story of a ‘life of outer grace and inner torment’.
Including interviews with the singer’s family, friends and musical colleagues, with re-enactments and archive film of Marvin on stage, at home and in the recording studio.
