Re-live the revolution, with rare anecdotes from celebrities and regulars, and see how this massive party, which crowned kings on the podiums, took on a life of its own, redefined a genre of music in Singapore and became the phenomenon that moved generations with one dance.

The film’s finale will be shot on location at Zouk on 8 August 2015. This documentary come at a perfect timing when Zouk is bidding farewell to its Jiak Kim Street home in May next year. The 24 years old nightspot will be moving to Block C of Clarke Quay.
