A few days ago, the TV network V has released online the first trailer of Funkytown, a drama which was shot with a budget of CDN$7.3 million and directed by Daniel Roby (La peau blanche).
First of all, Funkytown stars Patrick Huard, Paul Doucet, Raymond Bouchard, Sarah Mutch, Justin Chatwin, Geneviève Brouillette and François Létourneau.
The story takes place in the 1970s in Montreal (Quebec), which was the wealthiest city in Canada at the time. Obviously, during this time, North America was having a love affair with disco. Besides, the film is set around the Limelife Discotheque, which was the place in Montreal for those who wished to be noticed or to meet stars like Donna Summer for instance.
Finally, the film will be in theatres in Quebec on December 17, 2010.
