Hitsville - The Making of Motown (12a)

Director Gabe & Benjamin Turner. Documentary/Music


This fascinating documentary explores the birth of iconic record label Motown Records, which led an explosion of black music into the mainstream cultural sphere. Young, gifted and black, Motown’s extraordinary flowering of musical talent included Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, the Temptations and the Jackson 5 – all gathered in an unlikely studio in the Detroit suburbs: ‘Hitsville, USA’. Led by reminiscences from label boss Berry Gordy and featuring rare archive footage and interviews with hitmakers past and present (including John Legend, Dr Dre and Jamie Foxx), Hitsville documents an extraordinary cultural force.

Starring Berry Gordy, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder
