Missouri State University Film Series: Summer Children

Date range

Summer Children Springfield Arts

A yacht. A remote island. A group of friends explore the boundaries that define their identities. An early work from the American New Wave movement, Summer Children is a time capsule of the culture of the 1960s. West (Stuart Anderson), a handsome young man born to a wealthy yet absent family, falls in love with the ethereal Diana (Valora Noland). Their innocence is forever lost as they become tangled in seduction, deception, and betrayal resulting in tragedy. Visually intoxicating, the film is photographed by Academy Award®- winning cinematographer, Vilmos Zsigmond, ASC (CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, THE DEER HUNTER, DELIVERANCE)
