Norway, 74 mins, 2016, subtitled
The fascinating, untold story of a group of teenagers in the remote Norwegian towns of Bergen and Tromsø who, geographically and culturally isolated, set up radio stations, parties and built synthesisers to produce their own version of dance music; the results were totally unique. The world embraced this new dance music and new generation of DJs and musicians were born.
Starring Prins Thomas, Annie, Bjørn Torske, Lindstrøm, Idjut Boys and Bill Brewster, amongst many others Northern Disco Lights explores how ‘disco’ went from being a dirty word to the inspiration and DNA behind these new global superstars.
