Summer of ’84 Synopsis

It’s the summer of 1984, the perfect time to be 14 years old and free.

Summer of ’84 is directed by the Montreal filmmaking collective RKSS, which consists of François Simard and brother & sister Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell. The cast includes Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, and Cory Grüter-Andrew.
