Doc Edge - Disco Bloodbath (with Q&A)

Run time:
108 mins
Release date:
25 June 2022

From the back alleys and underground clubs of Karangahape Road, this film follows the politics and individual characters that shaped this iconic event. The Disco Bloodbath event was created in 2015 out of frustration with the Auckland drag scene and its limitations on performers. Designed to be a subversive drag and cabaret show where almost nothing was off limits, the film observes the integral members of the troupe as it rapidly gains popularity and gradually morphs into something beyond what its original performers wanted it to be.
