Pictures and Hogpath announce the upcoming release of the The
Drive Home: the documentary.
Detroit has been a major force in the
development and proliferation of electronic music throughout the world.
Until now, the city has not officially recognized and appreciated its
local talent. Many Detroit-based electronic music artists are celebrated
and revered overseas, yet unlike the celebrities of Motown, they remain
their own backyards. The organizers of The Detroit Electronic Music
Festival recognized this and brought together
a truly international cast of artists to help Detroit celebrate its
musical influence with the rest of the world.
The Drive Home captures the historic nature of this 3-day event
by profiling the people, both on and off stage,
who made the 2000 Detroit Electronic Music Festival possible: the
organizers, the performing artists, the 1.5 million fans.
The film is comprised of over 50 artist interviews, live performance
and historic footage of detroit's rich electronic beginnings. Through
words, music and images, the roots of Detroit's often misunderstood
and unknown soul become inspiring and evident.
