About the Movie

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. Secret Disco Revolution juxtaposes disco revisionists against revealing new interviews with the era's biggest stars: The Village People, Gloria Gaynor, Kool and the Gang... A goldmine of rarely seen stock footage, and enough disco hits to shake your booty straight back to 1978.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Faddish taste may be interesting for some, but for others it will devolve into the banal, as cultural history as well as entertainment. – David DeWitt, New York Times, Jun 28, 2013

Rotten: The movie feels like a flakey, off-the-cuff blog post that somehow transmogrified itself into a feature-length documentary. – Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, Jun 27, 2013

Fresh: The film isn't as smart on the issue of race as it needs to be, and its feminist read of the music and scene feels forced in places, but as an entry-level conversation starter, it gets the job done. – Ernest Hardy, Village Voice, Jun 25, 2013

Fresh: "The Secret Disco Revolution," claims that the steady "four on the floor" beat was the reason for the liberation of gays, African Americans and women. And oddly, in a blend of humorous and dead serious storytelling, director James Kastner makes his case. – Leba Hertz, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 27, 2013
