The Summer House was screened at the British Society of Cinematographers New Cinematographers Night in November of 2009.
The BSC updated with their program for that night, including The Summer House, listing it as 14 minutes long. (Kate: Only 14mins?? That's just like long trailer! But I'll take what I can get. GAH I just wanna see this? I feel like we've waited forever)
Filmed in France, this is the first venture by Miss Gili to produce write and direct her own short film. Although she is joint principle of the non government funded London Film Academy, her short was made totally independent of the LFA. The result is a warm, dreamy piece, which captures the lazy summer afternoons and cool evenings at the French villa, for a gathering of family members. I suppose the temptation may have been there to pace it up a bit, but she held to the story which gently unfolded. Nicely photographed by Alex Ryle.
