HITSVILLE: THE MAKING OF MOTOWN

Thursday 28 November 2019

HITSVILLE:THE MAKING OF MOTOWN 
Thursday 28 November 2019 at 2.30pm and 7.30pm

Berry Gordy, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder

Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson joke and reminisce as they take us on the tour of the building that housed Motown Records (now a museum), which Gordy built into the iconic music brand of the 60s. Surviving creative personnel talk about how the hit songs were created, and archive footage gives a feeling for the delight that these artists had in creating music that will never die. Surprising, informative, amusing, this film will put a smile on your face and have you dancing in the street.

2019 | Dir Benjamin Turner, Gabe Turner | 112min |  USA

“Some of the archive clips trigger goosebumps, while Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson radiate charm in this affectionate anniversary tribute to Detroit’s influential record label” The Guardian

The programme will also include our current BRIT School Showcase film Evening (U, 3 mins), a music video made by Alice Pearson, James Mason and Rachel Goulding.
