DENVER, July 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — In the early 90s, actor, comedian, writer and director, Robert Townsend, went against every obstacle in Hollywood, relying on his faith, street smarts, and tenacity to bring his passion project, 1991’s “The Five Heartbeats,” to big screens. The story of the rise and fall of an African American vocal group in the 1960s, the musical drama is the subject of Townsend’s documentary, “Making The Five Heartbeats.” In addition to the documentary, attendees will view an exclusive welcome from Townsend.

Tickets for “Making The Five Heartbeats” can be purchased online at www.fathomevents.com and participating theater box offices.

For a complete list of theater locations, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Townsend’s documentary chronicles his inspiring journey to present a new image of black people in cinema. A love letter to the movie’s fans, as well as a master-class on filmmaking, “Making The Five Heartbeats” is told through behind-the-scenes footage and personal stories with the five stars of the film (Townsend, Michael Wright, Harry J Lennix, Leon Robinson, Tico Wells), plus co-writer Keenen Ivory Wayans, and the film’s bad guy you love to hate, “Big Red” (Hawthorne James).

“For all those fans that have seen the movie more than once, for those that ask me when I’ll will revisit ‘The Five Heartbeats’ with a sequel, for those that love the R&B/soul groups that changed the musical landscape of America, and to all that want to dive deeper into this movie’s creation, this documentary is for you,” Townsend said. “I’m humbled by your ongoing love for ‘The Five Heartbeats’ and proud to be bringing you ‘Making The Five Heartbeats.'”
