I'm In The Toronto International Film Festival!
And here's a review:
"How can you turn down a film that has Michael Musto, Donna Summer, and the Village People?
"It's simply not possible. Submit and let The Secret Disco Revolution have its way with you."
The documentary by Jamie Kastner is a look at the subversive, explosive, exciting messages that disco set to a seemingly mindless thumping beat, pumping socially progressive ideas to go with your drugs and line dances.
It was actually a secret way to liberate gays, blacks, and women--and I happen to be all three!
The film already played the fest on Saturday, but there's another screening this Thursday, so put on your boogie boots, run up to Toronto, and prepare to dance the Lady Bump into the night.
And yes, this is one revolution you can wear polyester for.
