The Last Day of Disco, born here out of fleeting enjoyment and livelier times, the spoils of a nondescript consumerist lifestyle, and aims to capture this sense of testimonial depiction or closeness with reality. A collective slow-down, then to a halt, then a death onset by the pandemic.

Indeed this stagnant static experience on a global scale makes contact once more. Affecting many - including marginalized groups. Some work in The Last Day of Disco possess incredibly high stakes and unbelievably boring everyness. Despite a lot of these works’ slowness, or stillness: these works remain alive.

Whit Stillman’s 1988 American comedy-drama film, The Last Days of Disco, is his third film in what he called his “Doomed-Bourgeois-in Love series.” Loosely based on his experiences in various nightclubs in Manhattan, including Studio 54.
