Presented by Christian John Wikane!
It’s Friday night, 1978, and a crowd of cool cats are headed to LA’s hottest disco looking for love, lust, drugs, and dancing! Most famous among them is Donna Summer, who plays an aspiring singing trying to convince the disco’s DJ to let her perform her new song “Last Dance” (which became Summer’s biggest hit and won an Oscar). Tonight’s guest presenter, music journalist and essayist Chrisian John Wikane, is a veritable scholar of disco and an expert on all things related to tonight’s film. Wikane will be organizing a panel with some of disco’s biggest aficionados to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Last Dance” winning an Oscar, Grammy, and cementing itself as a timeless anthem of the disco genre.
Screening as part of the Summer 2019 season of Queer|Art|Film.
