The Black Mafia Family or BMF as they were called made close to $300 million trafficking cocaine from Atlanta to Los Angeles. Two brothers, Demetrius “Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, ran a drug enterprise that had 200 members and was connected to one of the major Mexican cartels. In the Hip-Hop music industry, they created a front company called BMF Entertainment, which was a perfect mix of drugs, violence, and street cred that makes their story hip-hop’s version of The Godfather. BMF is an 60-minute documentary that explores the story of the 15 year investigation by the DEA, FBI and an elite drug task force called HIDTA that resulted in 41 defendants across the country being charged in one of the largest drug conspiracy cases ever. The film is a tale that combines the story of a criminal syndicate that lived on a code of honor and conduct that rivaled any of the five Mafia families, and ended just as dramatically.
Don Sikorski broke onto the scene with his feature-length documentary RA SHEET: Hip-Hop and the Cops. The film was brought by Universal/Screen Media Ventures and was released on July 31, 2007. Sikorski spent three years writing, directing, and producing the project that traces the story of an NYPD-FBI intelligence unit that had the Hip-Hop industry under surveillance.Upon completion of RAP SHEET, Sikorski started research on his next Film ARTICLE 32. The documentary tells the true-life tale of seven Marines and one Navy Corpsman that were charged with murder in Iraq. The group were coined the Pendleton 8. The film is currently distributed by Larry Meistrict and NEHST STUDIOS.
