That Summer

As many of you know I tried to make a documentary of the creative community of Montauk and the artists,  photographers, writers , actors, actresses, models etc. that settled in Montauk and used it as a muse.   After several years of trying the project got shelved. I found out this past weekend that one of the primary artists that got things started out here in Montauk Peter Beard is coming out with film in the circuit titled above.   It will be close to what we tried to do and I am excited to see the footage and see more of the golden age of Montauk in the 1970s.  I am sure they will do a great job and the archival footage shot by Warhol,  Jonas Mekas and Beard will be a special treat.  The film will debit at Telluride Film Festival in September.
