Did the disco fad of the ‘70s “liberate” gays, blacks and women from the male-centric head space of rock and pop culture? There are a few tantalizing threads in Canadian filmmaker Jamie Kastner’s doc that suggest as much—the simple fact of the Village People’s unbridled queer paradigm, and Donna Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby” representing a female-orgasmic experience, as opposed to the dude-dominated three-minute pop song. But Kastner’s history is simplistic, his pacing is glacial and his film is laboriously constructed around a campy fictional trio of caricatured gay-black-girl “masterminds” planning the “revolution,” thumbing through a “manifesto” and sprinkling glitter ritualistically on a mirror ball.
