A memorable portrait of an outsider with attitude, this film chronicles the infamous photographer’s life behind and outside the camera. A child of immigrants who spent his life battling inner demons, Jim fought his way to become one of the 1960’s most acclaimed mavericks behind the lens. His passion for music led him to capture some of the most iconic figures and moments in music history: from Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones to the infamous image of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar. It was Marshall’s abrasive but honest approach to his subjects, combined with incredible technical skill and ability to build trust, that expanded his portfolio beyond celebrities to a body of work that documented a key period in 20th century history.
