Adam Csoka Keller imagines a technicolor night out in summer 1984 in a prelude film for Josh Blaaberg’s ‘Distant Planet: The Six Chapters of Simona,’ a documentary created in partnership with Frieze.
Switching between the reality of the teenagers getting ready in their friend’s bedroom to them transforming into glamorous versions of themselves in a kaleidoscopic dream sequence, the pre-roll film captures the characters in Gucci pieces and accessories in an expression of the fantasy world Italo Disco created.
