One year after assuming the top seat at Gucci, designer Sabato De Sarno has received his own documentary. Titled Who Is Sabato De Sarno?, the 20-minute short sheds light on the week before the creative director’s debut runway show for the Florentine fashion house, with interviews from close collaborators, including producer Mark Ronson and stylist Alastair McKimm.

The project was directed by New York filmmakers Arie Schulman and Henry Joost, who previously worked on Catfish and two iterations of Paranormal Activity. Irish actor and Gucci brand ambassador Paul Mescal narrates the film, which ends with the runway show, a spectacle that Mescal calls “the 18 minutes to change Sabato’s life.”

“The film was supposed to be five minutes long but it ended up being 20 minutes because we captured so much great material,” said Schulman and Joost, per WWD. “We are so grateful that [Sabato] trusted us to tell his story.”

De Sarno took to Instagram to offer his own quote on the film in Italian. Here’s the English translation: “When I stop for a second and think back to the September fashion show, I am overwhelmed by the same emotions I felt in that moment: joy, fear, pride… Today, finally, I can share with all of you a story of what those crazy and very happy [times were like]. It’s all there: the laughter, the dancing, the frantic weather checks, the hugs, the waiting.”

Who Is Sabato De Sarno? is now available to watch on Mubi. Watch the teaser video above.
