Movie Info

The disco era, long dismissed as a time of hedonistic excess, has been gravely misunderstood. Revisionist historians now argue the era was in fact an important time of protest: liberating gays, blacks and women. THE SECRET DISCO REVOLUTION juxtaposes disco revisionists against revealing new interviews with the era's biggest stars: Gloria Gaynor (I Will Survive), Village People (YMCA, In The Navy), Robert "Kool" Bell from Kool and the Gang, and Harry Wayne "K.C." Casey - KC and the Sunshine Band. ... A goldmine of rarely seen stock footage, and enough disco hits to shake your booty straight back to 1978. But the film's form is as revolutionary as its content: This quietly hilarious doc-satire also features an unreliable Nabokovian narrator; "reenactments" that are speculative to the point of complete fantasy; and a unique tone of sustained irony that both presents a fresh look at a well-known era, and compels audiences to question it, without ever allowing them off the dancefloor Written, produced, and directed by Jamie Kastner,a Toronto-based filmmaker and writer whose work has received international acclaim (Kike Like Me, Recessionize! For Fun And Profit! , Free Trade is Killing My Mother, Djangomania!) (c) E One
