Stevan Riley’s acclaimed LISTEN TO ME MARLON is the definitive Marlon Brando documentary. On the heels of its celebrated premieres at Sundance Film Festival, New Directors, Film Forum (NY) and The Landmark (LA), LISTEN TO ME MARLON will open in theaters across the US. Described as “Revelatory” by the Los Angeles Times, “A masterpiece” by the Village Voice and “Unmissable” by GQ, LISTEN TO ME MARLON was created using Brando’s vast archive of personal audio archive, allowing him to tell the story in his own words.
Produced by John Battsek (Searching for Sugar Man, The Tillman Story, The Imposter) and R.J. Cutler (The War Room, The September Issue), LISTEN TO ME MARLON is a journey into the mind of one of the most captivating and influential actors of all time. For the first time, Brando’s personal audio recordings come to life, charting his exceptional career as an actor and his extraordinary life away from the stage and screen. The film reveals the complexities and contradictions that were Marlon Brando, guiding us into the padlocked recesses of his own memory and through the story of his life.
