Josh Blaaberg presents Italo disco in all its glamour and artifice. Distant Planet: The Six Chapters of Simona defines the genre by the loss of language, voice and dashed hopes for a better future.

Through archive footage, interviews and newly-imagined unrealities, the film takes three Italo disco stars and journeys with them as they reconnect with the forgotten fantasies of the music.

Distant Planet is the third of a four-part film project by Frieze and Gucci, Second Summer of Love, which delves into the enduring impact and international explosion of electronic music and youth culture in the 1980s.
