Michael Jackson’s journey from Motown to Off the Wall is coming to the big screen this coming Thursday, exclusively at Event Cinemas Marion.
The estate of Michael Jackson and Legacy Recordings/Sony Music Entertainment Australia will release exclusive CD/DVD and CD/Blu-ray editions of Michael Jackson’s revolutionary 1979 album, Off the Wall. The package will include the original version of the album bundled with the new documentary, Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall, directed by Spike Lee.
For the documentary, Spike Lee assembled a wealth of archival footage, including material from Michael’s personal archive, interviews with contemporary talents and family members, and Michael’s own words and image, to create this insightful chronicle from the star’s early rise to fame through the release of this seminal album.
A look at a chapter of his career that is rarely examined, Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall allows audiences to travel with Michael as he gets his start at Motown, strikes a new path with CBS Records, and forges a relationship with legendary producer Quincy Jones. An illuminated portrait emerges of how an earnest, passionate, hard-working boy would become the “King of Pop”.
Some of the interviews include Lee Daniels, The Weeknd, Pharrell Williams, Misty Copeland, Kobe Bryant, Mark Ronson, John Legend, Questlove, Katherine Jackson, Joe Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Jackie LA Reid and more.
