The Record Man Documentary: "Henry Stone's Story Is the Story of Miami Music History"

From 1948 to 2014, Henry Stone ruled the Florida music industry with an iron fist, a wad of cash, and a warehouse full of vinyl.

Whether forming a label with James Brown or racking up as many back to back number-one Billboard pop hits as the Beatles, he made his mark on global culture.

The new documentary about his life and work is called The Record Man, and its world premiere will occur at Miami Dade College's Miami International Film Festival 2015. Here's what director Mark Moormann had to say about making movies, recording history, and the legacy of Henry Stone.
