Iconic artist Andy Warhol will feature in ‘That Summer’, a documentary about Long Island’s creative community in the ‘70s which includes footage Warhol shot himself

Creative genius Andy Warhol was one of the most iconic, popular and prolific artists of the 20th Century. Defining a new genre in art with his witty 'pop art' paintings depicting everyday items like Campbell's soup cans and Coca-cola bottles. As famous for his bold celebrity portraits as he was for his A-list friends and killer parties at his studio The Factory, Warhol has always been an incredibly intriguing figure. And this upcoming doco looks set to offer an eye-opening behind-the-scenes look into his life and that of his cool kid crew.

According to Variety, That Summer is being directed by Swedish filmmaker Göran Hugo Olsson and " based on unique footage shot by Andy Warhol, Peter Beard and Jonas Mekas in the 1970s in Montauk, Long island." The documentary is an up close and personal portrait of famed photographer, artist and author Peter Beard and follows him through the '70s as he and his friends, specifically Warhol, turned Montauk into a creative hotspot.

Aside from his artistry, Warhol was also into filmmaking and TV, producing more than 60 films during his career according to Biography and hosting Andy Warhol's TV and Andy Warhol's fifteen Minutes on MTV. Using footage shot by Warhol for That Summer seems like a no brainer.

No news yet on a release date for the film.
