At the end of the 1970s Disco was dead, deemed too mainstream and
overexploited. But DJs and dancefloors still needed records and so the
High Energy style was born. With its faster rhythms and stripped-back
synthesiser sound, High Energy took gay clubs by storm before taking
over the charts in the 1980s. This documentatry tells the story of an international musical genre coming from San Francisco, London, Montreal and Munich.
"High Energy : The Revival of Disco" was shot in New York in November 2018 and broadcasted on the French-German TV Network Arte in March 2019.
