Disco clubs

Clubs, nightclubs and other rowdy dance floors are places of ligthness, seduction or dissidence, where musical trends, dramas and romances are born. They are the sulphurous theater of the bodies that are bring together , but also a mental space that can make the multitude and the solitude, the party feeling and the melancholy coexist. From the disco scene of the 1970s to today, this cycle brings together films where people dance without a tomorrow, in the light of neon and strobes.
