"Bold, creative and unflinching, DISCO BOY is alive with unpredictable political energy." - Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, AWFJ.org

"A sensuous, striking film experience." Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter

In the bold and dazzling DISCO BOY, winner of the Berlinale’s Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution, Aleksei (Franz Rogowski, PASSAGES) is an undocumented Belarusian immigrant who joins the French Foreign Legion in exchange for the promise of French citizenship. Far away in the Niger Delta, Jomo is a military guerrilla, fighting against oil companies that threaten his village. Across borders and time, in this immersive electronic score-soaked stunner, the two men’s destinies converge. Film Center exclusive.
