The Beales of Grey Gardens, Big Edie and Little Edie take centre stage in That Summer. The film uncovers footage lost for decades shot by Andy Warhol, Peter Beard and the socialite sister of Jackie Onassis, Lee Radziwill. That Summer centres on the film project artist Peter Beard initiated together with the incandescent Lee Radziwill about her relatives: the Beales of Grey Gardens. Lost for decades, this extraordinary footage re-emerges in Olsson’s documentary, which 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.
