Pacific Club

In 1979, the Pacific Club opened in a basement in La Défense—the business district of Paris. It was the first nightclub for young Arabs from the suburbs: a parallel world of dance, sweat, young lovers, and one-night romances. Azedine was one of them. He tells his generation’s forgotten story.

MUBI's take

Through evocative 3D imaging and revelatory interviews, Valentin Noujaïm resurrects a vibrant piece of cultural history lying dormant beneath the corporate skyscrapers of La Défense. A transcendental hymn to a legendary nightclub and the healing power of music for the Arab diaspora in Paris.
