The beloved 1975 documentary 'Grey Gardens' has inspired songs, spawned a Broadway musical and an HBO teledrama starring Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore. Now Swedish filmmaker Göran Hugo Olsson has made a "prequel" to the cult doc.
'That Summer' recovers previously lost footage, some of it shot by Andy Warhol, from a film project by artist Peter Beard and Lee Radziwill (Jackie Kennedy's sister) about her relatives: the Beales of Grey Gardens. This extraordinary footage focuses on Peter Beard and his family of friends, who formed a vibrant and profoundly influential creative community in Montauk (Long Island) in the 1970s.
Featuring Peter Beard, Lee Radziwill, Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale, Edith Bouvier Beale (Little Edie and Big Edie), Andy Warhol.
