IFC to Release “That Summer” Lost Footage Doc of “Grey Gardens” Subjects on September 11

IFC has announced the release of That Summer (DVD: $24.98), slated for September 11. Three years before Albert and David Maysles’ landmark documentary Grey Gardens introduced the world to unforgettable mother and daughter (and Jackie O. relatives) Edith and Edie Beale and their decaying dream world on Long Island, renowned photographer Peter Beard chronicled life at their crumbling estate during the summer of 1972. In That Summer, director Göran Olsson assembles this long-lost footage—featuring glimpses of luminaries such as Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, and Truman Capote—into a one-of-a-kind family portrait bursting with the loving squabbles, quotable bon mots, and impromptu musical numbers that would make Big and Little Edie beloved cultural icons.
