Summer Love gained a reputation early on as Canada’s “it” girl for fresh, edgy pop culture documentaries. From films that explore the underground DJ music scene to the cutting edge of Montreal’s fashionistas, to her latest foray into pop and politics, Love’s films have one thing in common; they aim to engage, enlighten and inspire.

Summer is currently working on a feature length documentary on the controversial life and legacy of the blues/funk legend, Johnny “Guitar” Watson.
