Kevin Macdonald’s Marley, examining the life and times of reggae legend Bob Marley, and Werner Herzog’s four-part doc series Death Row will have their world premieres at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival in February.

The Marley project has seen three different helmers take the director’s chair over the course of its history, with Martin Scorsese first billed to work on the project, then Jonathan Demme, and now Macdonald, director of Touching the Void and the recent Life in a Day.

Herzog’s four-part Death Row doc series is a companion piece of sorts to his recent feature Into the Abyss: A Tale of Death, A Tale of Life, which had its world premiere in September at the Telluride and Toronto film fests.

The 62nd Berlin international Film Festival takes place from February 9-19.
