About the film:
Northern Disco Lights , a 74 minute feature documentary tells the untold story of a group of teenagers in the arctic city of Tromsø, who set off a chain of events that would go on to transform their country. To escape the boredom of growing up in a remote outpost they created their own music scene, setting up radio stations, parties, building synthesizers and making tunes. Word spread as like-minded souls recognized the call to arms and inspired a generation of kids who would go on to change dance music and Norway forever.
