In “Making the Five Heartbeats,” filmmaker Robert Townsend takes a well-deserved victory lap in revisiting his 1991 cult favorite “The Five Heartbeats,” a Motown-flavored musical drama about the rise and fall of an African-American vocal group in the 1960s. His behind-the-scenes documentary about his passion project chronicles the inspiring journey of a young black writer/director (Townsend) determined to present a new image of black people in cinema while endeavoring to create a classic. The original film and documentary will screen together.
