The Danish premiere of Göran Hugo Olsson’s That Summer, edited by Per K. Kirkegaard, sound design by Henrick Garnov and co-produced by Signe Byrge Sørensen, was shown as part of the Grey Gardens Revisited series. The film was introduced by Lars Movin and followed by a Q&A with Olsson on how the making of That Summer was initiated, as well as the director’s process.

That Summer is a feature documentary centred on the film project artist Peter Beard initiated in 1972 with Lee Radziwill about her relatives, the Beales of Grey Gardens. Lost for decades, this extraordinary footage re-emerges in a film that focuses on Beard and his family of friends, who formed an enormously influential and vibrant creative community in Montauk, Long Island (NY) in the 1970s. Featuring Peter Beard, Lee Radziwill, Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale, Edith Bouvier Beale, Andy Warhol. Including footage directed by Peter Beard, Jonas Mekas, Andy Warhol and with additional cinematography by Albert Maysles and Vincent Fremont.
