Gucci - 16 Jul 2018

Trailer: Josh Blaaberg - ‘Distant Planet’

A journey with three stars of Italo disco as they reconnect with forgotten fantasies exploring what the genre might have been

Josh Blaaberg’s new film Distant Planet: The Six Chapters of Simona is the third in the Second Summer of Love series collaboration between Gucci and Frieze, exploring the impact of 1988 – the year which saw a music-driven cultural revolution of the same magnitude as the ’60s counterculture movement. 

From New York house (Wu Tsang), to acid house (Jeremy Deller), to Italo disco (Josh Blaaberg), to Detroit techno (Arthur Jafa), four specially-commissioned artist films explore the lasting impact of the Second Summer of Love, thirty years ago up to today.
