Listen to Me Marlon

marlon.jpg

Marlon Brando wasn’t just one of the most acclaimed and influential actors of all time, he was also one of the most elusive and enigmatic. In the new documentary Listen to Me Marlon, filmmaker Stevan Riley charts Brando’s career on camera and the life he lived away from it. He tells the story using no talking heads or interviewees. Brando kept an extensive archive of personal audio recordings, and it’s his words that tell his story. Riley joins us Wednesday to talk about Brando’s life and legacy.

Stevan Riley has directed the documentaries Blue Blood, Fire in Babylon, and Everything or Nothing. His latest film Listen to Me Marlon debuted at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It’s currently showing at the Broadway Centre Cinemas in downtown Salt Lake City. DETAILS
