Disco Boy

The charismatic Franz Rogowski (Passages; Transit) stars as a Belarusian immigrant haunted by his actions while serving in the French Foreign Legion. Giacomo Abbruzzese’s stylish debut feature won the Berlin Film Festival’s Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution.

The Guardian calls Disco Boy “a visually thrilling, ambitious, and distinctly freaky adventure into the heart of imperial darkness . . . or an alternative reality.” 

Underwriting for the Film Department is provided by Tenaris, The June Leaf and Robert Frank Foundation, and the Vaughn Foundation.

Generous funding is provided by The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea; Nina and Michael Zilkha; Lois Chiles; Foundation for Independent Media Arts; Franci Neely; Carrin Patman and Jim Derrick; Ms. Laurence Unger; L'Alliance Française de Houston; and ILEX Foundation.
