More about Funkytown

Travel back to 1976 for the music and the fashions when Director Daniel Roby’s disco-era drama Funkytown debuts on DVD October 2nd from Wolfe Video. It will be available early across all digital platforms on August 21st. Patrick Huard (Good Cop, Bad Cop; Starbuck), Justin Chatwin (War of the Worlds, TV’s Shameless), Paul Doucet (Wicker Park), Raymond Bouchard (Nitro), François Létourneau (Cheech), Geneviève Brouillette (TV’s Apparences), Sophie Cadieux (Angle Mort), and international supermodel Sarah Mutch star in the Genie Award-winning ensemble drama following the lives and loves of a disco-dancing group of people in the late 70s.

The King of disco. The man with a secret life. The rising star eager to get ahead. The music producer desperate for one more hit. In Montreal in 1976, they all wanted to see and be seen at the trendiest club in town, and juggled freedom and tradition, lovers and family, drugs and sobriety, fame and anonymity, in a time when excess was the norm, and disco ruled. Based on true events, Funkytown brings back the glitter, glamour and edginess of that era.
