High Energy: The Revival of Disco 52' by Olivier Monssens


"Relax, don’t do it!", "This Time I Know It’s Real", "Oh, High energy!": These hits inflamed the eighties! From San Francisco to London and New York, explore the story of a new form of disco: Hi-NRJ music, known for its electro beats, strange voices, and frenetic vibes.

Take a look behind the scenes, thanks to glowing and flashy clips and rare interviews of artists, which after a first underground life in the US, transformed this musical style into a whole decade culture.
