Might what we know as Disco actually contain hidden meanings, despite attempts by revisionist to re-shape it as as a misunderstood culture of protest? Through interviews with the likes of Gloria Gaynor, The Village People, Kool and the Gang and others, along with a goldmine of stock footage and speculative reenactments, The Secret Disco Revolution presents a comical investigation into disco and its "mysterious longevity."

The Canadian-produced feature documentary was directed by Jamie Kastner; it'll premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.

Cheekily fun and intellectually absorbing, Jamie Kastner’s meticulously researched documentary casts a new light on the much-maligned musical genre, contending that the disco era represented a moment of mass liberation for women, African-Americans and gay men.

Here's it's cheekily fun trailer:
