“In Montauk”

Tweetable Logline:

A pregnant photographer on the cusp of success has an affair that leads to a life-changing decision.

Elevator Pitch:

Photographer Julie Wagner is taking photos in Montauk in the off-season for her first solo show. Pregnant, alone and under pressure to create new work for the impending show, she becomes involved with Christian, a composer, who becomes her muse and lover. Complicating matters is Julie’s husband Josh. Who will she choose? And who will pay the consequences?

Production Team:

Writer/Director/Producer: Kim Cummings (“Weeki Wachee Girls”)
Co-Producer: Jeremiah Kipp (“Satan Hates You,” “The Jonestown Defense”)
Director of Photography: Brian Dilg (“Leaving Ashland,” “Auf Wiedersehen: ‘Til We Meet Again,” “Weeki Wachee Girls”)
Editor: Eleanor Burke (“Stranger Things”)
Composer: Charlie Schmid (“Body/Antibody”)

About the Production:

“This film is about a woman at a crossroads in her artistic career and family life. The two men personify the opposing pull between art and family that many contemporary female artists face. It’s a personal story, based on my own experience of being both a mother and a filmmaker and constantly being pulled between those two worlds. Unlike my own experience, the main character in this film makes a non-traditional choice which I think will shock people, but will hopefully open up a dialog about what it means to be a female artist and the sacrifices motherhood requires.” — Kim Cummings
