In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the famous song by Bob Marley, his estate and record label have released an official music video created by French artists Octave Marsal & Theo De Gueltzl.
Marsal & De Gueltzl’s breathtaking animation, featuring 2,747 original drawings, uses powerful symbols to amplify the magnitude of the song’s timeless lyrics and importance in today’s world.
