Written by the director, the screenplay follows two destinies at odds with each other. After a painful journey through Europe, Alex, the Belarusian, joins the Foreign Legion in France and clings to a confused hope of a European identity. Jomo, the Nigerian, fights for the survival and durability of his people in the Niger Delta and is ready to die to defend his ideas. These two young people who are sacrificed and smashed together will, against all odds, meet and their destinies will merge to continue across borders, bodies, life and death...

Produced by Lionel Massol and Pauline Seigland for the Brittany company Films Grand Huit (whose credits include the 2019 César for Best Short Film Les petites mains), Disco Boy is co-produced in France by Division (Arno Moria) and Stromboli Films (Juliette Sol), in Belgium by Panache Productions (André Logie), in Italy by Dugong Films (Giulia Achili and Marco Alessi) and in Poland by Donten & Lacroix (Maria Blicharska). Pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature film also benefits from the support of the CNC (via an advance on receipts and an aid to visual or sound creation), the support fund for Franco-Italian co-productions (associating the CNC and the MiBAC), Eurimages, the regions of Ile-de-France and Ile de la Réunion, the Breizh Film Fund, Sofica Cinemage, Cineaxe and Arte Cofinova, the Wallonia-Brussels fund and Movie Tax Invest, the Polish Film Institute and the Podkarpackie region.

The 33 days of filming will take place until 9 October in Ile-de-France, then from 12 to 15 October in Poland (in the lower Carpathians) and finally from 20 to 29 October on the island of Reunion, with Frenchwoman Hélène Louvart (who worked on the films presented this year, Murina and The Lost Daughter [+leggi anche:

) as director of photography. Also noteworthy are the participation of Nigerian choreographer Qudus Onikeku and French composer Vitalic (world-renowned in electronic music).

Disco Boy will be distributed in France by KMBO and sold internationally by Charades.
