The Limelight was one of New York?s most famous nightclubs, but beneath its glamour and celebrity was an underworld of drugs, betrayal and murder. In Billy Corben?s latest documentary, we follow Limelight creator Peter Gatien through his career and the business of clubbing that nearly destroyed him. Corben traces Gatien?s history, beginning with his early career in Cornwall,Ontario, and captures the historical role the Limelight played in New York?s music and dance scene. While Gatien kept a low profile, his club became a hotbed for drugs and a focal point for the NYPD. With countless raids and drug busts, and the murder conviction of Limelight?s party promoter, Michael Alig, the Limelight?s days were numbered. Gatien became the centre of a federal investigation that unearthed a dramatic string of corruption and lies leading all the way to the police force.
