IT’S TIME FOR THE SUMMER CHILDREN
The fun at Slamdance Film Festival has begun. We think you’ll see how it can also be profitable for you after you view Summer Children –Monday, January 24th, 7:00 p.m., in Park City. Vilmos Zsigmond, Academy award winning cinematographer, has won many awards; he ranks Summer Children as one of “my best early works” in regards to his important efforts in America after escaping from the Hungarian revolution in the 1960’s. This American New Wave neo-noir film was produced in 1965, yet it never reached the screen. As the original producer; I thought this film had been lost, but through a serendipitous occurrence, re-discovered Summer Children in 2008. Edie Robinette –Petarchi and I then spent two years restoring and digitizing the film. From excitement shown by the Slamdance staff and other film buffs, it appears to be one of the most interesting offerings for the 2011 season.
Vilmos is known world-wide for his expert use of light and shadows in filming. Besides a gripping plot, Summer Children highlights one of America’s first looks at Vilmos’ masterful cinematography.
