The Legend of Cool “Disco” Dan rough cut @ Docs in Progress, Fri. March 4
Docs in Progress will show a rough cut of The Legend of Cool “Disco” Dan (90 minute rough cut of a documentary feature)
by Joseph Pattisall and Roger Gastman this Friday night, March 4.
Amidst the backdrop of Washington DC’s former claim to fame as the murder
capital of the United States and its unique urban culture centered around
Go Go music, Cool “Disco” Dan emerged as an underground celebrity in the
late 1980s and early 1990s. He graffitied his moniker all over the city
until it seemed as though no wall, rooftop, street sign, or Metro bus had
been forgotten. Somehow he managed to survive while legions of his peers
were killed, incarcerated, or became utterly adrift. This film looks back
at Washington DC’s own folk hero and what has become of him today.
