Looks interesting, not coming out until December 8, though:

https://www.amazon.com/Zappa-Frank-Summ ... B072RBZ5X3

In an unexpected convergence of art and life, Summer '82 - When Zappa Came to Sicily is a story of two families--Sicilian filmmaker Salvo Cuccia and the children of Sicilian American rock icon Frank Zappa--as they try to reconnect with fathers who died young. The tumultuous summer of 1982 is the playing field on which these parallel stories unfold and ultimately merge. The backdrop is the bloody mafia war that is raging in Sicily, Italy's triumphant win of the World Cup, and Zappa's World Tour, which climaxes with the first ever rock concert in Palermo. Told through the lens of the Italian portion of the tour in a style as eclectic as Zappa's music, the film features rare performance footage and interviews with Dweezil, Moon, Diva and Gail Zappa and Massimo Bassoli, Frank's friend and biographer, who was eyewitness to the events of that summer. The film crescendos in Palermo in an unexpected and emotional homecoming in which all of the seekers reach back though time to connect to something lost: parents, ancestry, homeland, and ultimately a more complete sense of identity.

Hoping for more Thomas Nordegg footage, less Massimo Bassoli but I'll take what I can get.

Meanwhile other videos popped up on youtube that mostly are longer or shorter variations of more or less the same footage. This is a quite interesting 10min version:

SWEET!!!! Great to see. I just got Zappa in Barcelona 17th of May 1988. That was a treat. Here's to a nice Hi-Def Bluray release to match Roxy the Movie. :)

Can the ZFT shed some light on the Region coding for this Bluray release?

Will it be region code free like the Roxy Bluray?

Fingers crossed then I can obtain it and view it sooner.

This is kind of a nice dvd/Blu-ray/whatever. It answers some questions about the concert and the Zappa family connections is cool. It’s curious that the immediate family is apparently still on good terms in this film. It only took Gail’s death and the Family Trust control being awarded to Diva and Ahmet to change things drastically.
