The long lost prequel to GREY GARDENS…
That Summer brings back the eccentric world of the mother-daughter duo from the classic documentary Grey Gardens. That Summer presents what was believed to have been lost footage from the summer of 1972, filmed by Peter Beard and Lee Radziwill ~ sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis. Additional material ~ shot by Andy Warhol, Jonas Mekas, Albert Maysles, and Vincent Fremont ~ also gives a unique insight into the dynamics of the former artist community in the Hamptons.
“While the Maysles' acclaimed film makes their affection for their subjects evident, there's a certain performative quality to the proceedings. That Summer offers a new level of intimacy as well as a wider view, with Beard's commentary lending compelling context… A must for fans of the Maysles’ film.” ~ Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
