Hitsville - The Making of Motown
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, The Four Tops 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 hit makers past and present, Hitsville documents an extraordinary cultural force.
