The Long Ear

The decade of the '70s was bookended by the birth and crest of disco music-and at the trend's pinnacle, it was subject to the most vitriolic of pre-viral public backlash from rock lovers. Was it simply a matter of taste? Or was the disdain rooted in a rejection of the African-American and Latino recording artists, and gay nightclub subculture, which did so much to make disco flourish? These questions get due consideration in this "American Experience" offering. 60 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
