Film "The Secret DISCO Revolution" 2013-08-21 19:10:00
Description

 

THE SECRET DISCO REVOLUTION

Director: Jamie Kastner   Canada/France/USA, 2012, 90 min

“ONE SMART DOCUMENTARY. IT’S SO CLEVER IT MAKES FUN OF ITSELF.” –The New York Times

Sometimes a social revolution only becomes obvious in hindsight. That's the hook behind this terrific and very funny documentary, which posits that the true agenda of the disco era was the freedom of gays, blacks, and women from the tyranny of straight/white/male-dominated rock music. Indeed, the conspiracy goes so deep that when interviewees such as the Sunshine Band's KC deny there was anything political in the booty-shaking music or culture, the narrator explains that they're still deep undercover. It's presented tongue-in-cheek, but in addition to being fun and packed with great tunes, the movie does makes a strong case for the connection of disco music to the liberation of underrepresented peoples. –SF Weekly    

“FOUR STARS!” –The Guardian

“The vintage clips range from unintentionally hilarious to surprisingly impressive.” –Portland Oregonian
