Billings Farm & Museum, gateway to Vermont's rural heritage, is hosting the film, Disco and the Atomic War, on Saturday, Dec. 29 at 3 p.m. as part of the 3rd Annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series.   

About the award-winning film Disco and the Atomic War: From the 1950s onward, Soviet-occupied Estonia was the battleground for a peculiar information war, where the totalitarian Soviet regime went head-to-head with Western pop culture - and lost. Although banned, Finnish television provided a window to a world of dreams that couldn't be blocked. Authorities discovered that no one really cared about Lenin or Marx; Estonians wanted to know who shot J.R., and the latest disco moves.
