BMF Documentary To Debut At 16th Annual Urbanworld Film Fest
The story of United States drug gang Black Mafia Family (BMF) will make its world premiere during the 16th annual Urbanworld Film Festival.
The 80-minute documentary, titled “BMF: The Rise and Fall of a Hip-Hop Drug Empire,” will be spotlighted during the 16th annual event, which will take place from September 19-23 in New York.
“BMF: The Rise and Fall of a Hip-Hop Drug Empire” was helmed by Don Sikorski. The doc details the rise and fall of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory as well as his brother, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory.
The brothers headed up the multi-state drug gang, which took in over $275 million in illegal proceeds from the cocaine trade, before they were caught and sentenced to 30-years in prison, after a 15-year investigation.
Over 11,000 government documents and a number of taped conversations are featured in the documentary, which tells the BMF tale from both the law enforcement side, as well as from the inside, through exclusive interviews.
DEA agents, as well as rappers like Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, Fabolous and others are featured in “BMF: The Rise and Fall of a Hip-Hop Drug Empire.”
Bobbito Garcia’s “Doing It In The Park,” will also be screened during the Urbanworld Film Festival, which is being presented by BET Networks.
