HITSVILLE: THE MAKING OF MOTOWN

Dir: Gabe Turner & Benjamin Turner
United States / 2019 / 110mins

With a soundtrack that will have you dancing in your seat, if not in the street, Hitsville: The Making of Motown celebrates the astronomical success and enduring cultural impact of Motown Records.

Founder of Motown Berry Gordy and his long-standing friend and co-creator Smokey Robinson recall the beginnings of the company that had a radically progressive approach and was way ahead of its time.

Interviews, archive footage and photographs bring the exciting and influential times to life, with performers including The Temptations, The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas and Marvin Gaye.

Brought together with a free-flowing anecdotal warmth, Hitsville: The Making of Motown recalls a crucial moment in musical history to celebrate the 60th anniversary of this iconic label.

The screening on Mon 30 Sept had a pre-recorded Intro.
