LISTEN TO ME MARLON which premiered earlier this year at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, will premiere on SHOWTIME on Saturday, November 14th at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Directed by Stevan Riley (Fire in Babylon), LISTEN TO ME MARLON, unlocks two-time Oscar(R) winner Marlon Brando’s extensive never-before-heard personal audio archive, bringing viewers on a creative odyssey into the mind and motivation of the enigmatic legend. As the lines between Brando’s on screen persona and personal life blurred, his audio recordings uncover his intellectual introspection, humor and sensitivity; a man in perpetual search for moral clarity. LISTEN TO ME MARLON was released in over 150 theaters this summer and was one of this year’s most successful films at Film Forum in New York.
Unbeknownst to the public, Marlon Brando amassed a vast archive of personal audio materials over the course of his lifetime. Now – for the first time – those audio recordings come to life in LISTEN TO ME MARLON. 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 by telling the story in his own words.
LISTEN TO ME MARLON is written, edited and directed by Stevan Riley and produced by Academy Award(R)-winning producer John Battsek (Searching for Sugar Man, The Tillman Story), Emmy(R) winner R.J. Cutler (THE WORLD ACCORDING TO DICK CHENEY, The September Issue) and Emmy Award nominee George Chignell (Ali). Academy Award-winner Andrew Ruhemann serves as the executive producer. LISTEN TO ME MARLON is a Passion Pictures production.
