Brief synopsis

A contemporary, multi-faceted metropolis. Nouveau-riche parents and their hedonist, live-in-the-moment children, surrounded by a reality where anger and tension pulsate almost to the brink of explosion. This is where we meet Marcin, a young man who comes to the city and meets Ola, a couple of years his junior. Fascinated, the girl lets him into her world of drugs, endless, bohemian parties and illegal car races. However, neither she nor her parents know that Marcin has a well-guarded secret and a plan for revenge…

„Hardkor Disko” is a film debut by Krzysztof Skonieczny, director and author of cult, award-winning music videos, among others illustrating songs by Mister D. (starring top model Anja Rubik), Brodka, Nosowska, Projekt Warszawiak, donGURALesko, or Jamal’s hit piece – ‘Defto.’ The leading role is played by Marcin Kowalczyk, one of the most interesting young Polish actors, winner of the Acting Prize of the Gdynia Film Festival and the Zbyszek Cybulski Award.
