Screen Media Films Takes U.S. Rights to Toronto Title 'The Secret Disco Revolution'
A June 2013 release is planned for the Canadian Jamie Kastner's documentary about a much-maligned 1970's music craze.
TORONTO - Screen Media Films has picked up the U.S. theatrical rights to Canadian doc maker Jamie Kastner’s The Secret Disco Revolution, which bowed at the Toronto International Film Festival last September.
The sale by Entertainment One Films International will see Screen Media stage a U.S. theatrical release in June 2013.
The Secret Disco Revolution features talking-head interviews with disco era stars like Gloria Gaynor, Thelma Huston, The Village People and Kool and the Gang.
The message is the much-maligned 1970s musical craze beyond its catchy tunes and polyester suits helped liberate women, African-Americans and gay men.
Entertainment One earlier sold the Canadian documentary to Kadokawa in Japan, Italy’s Sky Arts, and to ZDF ARTE for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France.
