Synopsis

Disco looks at contemporary Christian cults through the eyes of teen-aged Mirjam (Josefine Frida Pettersen). The film opens during a dance competition, where Mirjam is favored to win. But the atmosphere isn’t about the pleasure of dance or movement or the music. It’s about frenzied sexuality and therefore the various competitors’ desperate need for approval. (The effect of the scene may be a lot like sticking your head during a pin table .) Mirjam’s need is stoked by her mother – whose brother may be a very prominent pastor – and by her stepfather, who runs the church she essentially competes for. When the strain finally gets to Mirjam and she or he begins to lose competitions, her elders don’t seek to reassure her. They blame it on her lack of religion , a devastating accusation considering virtually every second of her day is dominated by religion, from the tv shows she watches to the podcasts and music she listens to. (When she dares to seem up bloggers who mention other issues, she’s told they’re just a sophisticated barrier between her and her God.) As Mirjam’s control and confidence slip away, she searches for more radical solutions. tt10864024
