SYNOPSIS

Every other Friday for 25 years, Albert O'Conner (Albie) has run a disco at the Barrow-In-Furness Catholic Church Hall for those in the area with mental or physical disabilities. Albie himself suffers from severe learning disabilities and over the decades the disco has become central to his world.

With a ramshackle collection of home made flashing lights and an old tape player, the disco may not look like much to an outsider, but 'Albie's Disco' has had a profound impact on many of the most vulnerable people in one of the most isolated and deprived wards in the UK.

This touching short film by first time filmmaker, Hunt, not only looks at the impact Albie's disco has had on its attendees, but also on Albie himself.
