Decades removed from the hedonism, the sex and drugs, and of course the dancing, this spirited documentary tells the hidden story of disco and how it wasn’t simply a short-lived musical fad but a beacon of change and hope for the gay and black communities and minority groups throughout North America in the 1970s. Featuring interviews with the leading lights of the time, from Gloria Gaynor to The Village People, as well as contemporary cultural experts, and not afraid to play it a little tongue in cheek when necessary, it’s simultaneously toe-tapping and revealing.
