Summer to Come



A compelling drama about a crisis amongst teenagers, created in an independent setting with the involvement of a group of youngsters – with, about, and for them. A brilliantly performed, deeply emotional film that successfully travelled to the biggest film festivals around the world.

Two boys and a girl in a high school summer camp – a year later, following the suicide of one of the boys, the remaining two return to the same place. A film about remembrance and the struggle to process loss at a young age: this dramatic narrative is brought by exceptionally convincing acting by young actors. The film was awarded at the Just Film Tallinn for “speaking to its audience with sincerity, skilfully opening a dialogue on a very difficult topic; using an experimental approach, which seduces its audience into following the story with great skill and care”.

Following the pandemic the teenage suicide crisis intensified, the number of events has increased significantly compared to previous years. Suicide is a taboo in our society – especially adolescent self-destructiveness. That is the reason why we felt it’s important to make it a main theme in our film to provide a starting point for this conversation. Our aim was to create a film with a young cast in a way that they are active participants in the creative process: we didn’t want the storytelling to be simply defined by the perspective of the filmmakers as adults, but their active presence should also have an influence. We created this self-funded film independently without any governmental financing opportunities in a countryside youth camp where the cast and crew lived together for 12 days.
