Dogwoof’s newest acquisition is Goran Hugo Olsson’s latest feature That Summer. In a deal with the producers, the agreement will see Dogwoof handle all international sales across all platforms while Cinetic will represent for North American sales That Summer will make its World Premiere in Telluride and both agents will screen the film to buyers in Toronto at a private screening.
“Dogwoof is the best distributor you could imagine. Our last film Concerning Violence made to the cinemas in an amazing 23 countries, but nothing compared to the work Dogwoof did in the UK. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do together on an international level. They are the best.” Göran Hugo Olsson, Director
That Summer is a feature documentary centered 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.
“Big Edie and Little Edie of Grey Gardens remain to this day the most iconic figures in documentary, so we jumped at the chance to be involved in That Summer with its incredible rediscovered footage from Peter Beard. With such an impressive directing and producing team behind the project, it could not be in better hands and we can't wait to bring this treasure archive to international audiences.” Oli Harbottle, Head of Distribution, Dogwoof
