Not long after his death in 2004, as his children were going through his home looking for special mementos, Marlon Brando’s daughter Rebecca found a large stash of audio tapes, “I tried to listen to one right then, but I couldn’t. It was hard to hear his voice then.”
The audio tapes and most of Brando’s possessions were put into storage and the audio tapes were rediscovered when the Brando estate started to catalog and bring out the items out of storage.
Eventually it was discovered that the tapes, that seemed to be meditation tapes at first, were much more than that. Along with meditation tapes, Brando recorded himself during episodes of self-hypnosis and while having conversations with visitors to his home.
Filmmaker Stevan Riley was enlisted to go through the tapes and see if he could make a film out of them. After reading every book written about Brando and interviewing Brando’s friends and family, Riley was able to craft a documentary that helps to fill in the gaps and bring Brando back to light in a whole new fashion. The film combines insights on the art of acting, Brando’s philosophical look on life and Brando recounting his own painful childhood.
