HITSVILLE: THE MAKING OF MOTOWN, the remarkable film charting the creation and incredible success of the legendary Motown Records against the backdrop of the growing civil rights movement, will be released on digital download on 4 October and on Blu-ray and DVD from 7 October. The first documentary about the iconic label to be made with the participation of the label’s visionary founder, Berry Gordy, HITSVILLE: THE MAKING OF MOTOWN releases during the year Motown Records celebrates its 60th Anniversary.
Directed by Gabe and Ben Turner (CLASS OF 92, I AM BOLT, ONE DIRECTION: THIS IS US), the story is told through new and exclusive interviews with Berry Gordy, many of its superstar artists and creative figures, as well as rare performances and behind-the-scenes footage unearthed from Motown’s vaults and Gordy’s personal archives. Altitude, the distributors of recent critically acclaimed documentaries AMY, WHITNEY, DIEGO MARADONA, LIAM GALLAGHER: AS IT WAS and 20 FEET FROM STARDOM are thrilled to be releasing HITSVILLE: THE MAKING OF MOTOWN.
HITSVILLE: THE MAKING OF MOTOWN focuses on the period beginning with the birth of the company in Detroit in 1958 until its relocation to Los Angeles in the early 1970s. The film tracks the unique system that Berry Gordy assembled that enabled Motown to become the most successful record label of all time.
The creation and initial success of Motown was achieved during a period of significant racial tensions in America and amid the burgeoning civil rights movement. The company’s music and post-racial vision were significant factors in helping the country – and the world – evolve through this transformative period in history.
