Full film details

Jim Marshall was there to photograph it all: the showmanship and excess of ‘60s and ‘70s rock through to the civil rights movement. He was known for his talent for capturing the humanity and significance of a moment and bringing people closer to his subjects, but who was the man on the other side of the lens?

Marshall carried much inner turmoil, and this documentary captures a rawer side of the man’s hedonistic and sometimes self-destructive life. A side that he never allowed to show within his photographs.

As he struggled to keep it together and battled to stand out as a music photographer, he found himself working with the likes of Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and many other prolific musicians. From there, Marshall became responsible for some of the most iconic photographs of the age: including that photo of Jimi Hendrix with his guitar on fire.

Hear from those he photographed and his close colleagues, including Academy Award-winner Michael Douglas (Wall Street, Ant-Man and the Wasp), musician Peter Frampton, photographer and director Anton Corbijn (The American, Life) in this Alfred George Bailey (Gregory Porter Don’t Forget Your Music) documentary about the celebrated photographer and the tortured artist that was Jim Marshall.
