The above information is supplied from the Summer Lovers press kit. More information can be found at the Internet Movie Database. The IMDB also has en extensive list of crew credits.
The bulk of the filming for Summer Lovers was done on Santorini, one of the southern most islands in the Greek Aegean. Some filming was also done on Crete, Delos, and Mykonos.
Santorini, is also known by its ancient name, Thira. The island is a huge volcano, the centre of which disappeared in a terriffic explosion in about 1500 B.C. It is widely believed that this cataclysm wherein half the island slid into the sea, together with the attendant tidal wave which destroyed Minoan Crete, gave rise to the legend of the lost continent of Atlantis.
Mykonos is the most renowned of the Aegean islands, famous for its splendid series of beaches and non-stop night life. It is also the island of access to Delos, which was the seat of the Aegean League. Delos probably has more ruins and artifacts than any other Grecian site. Once again, the production received an unprecedented permission to film among the ruins, which provided an atmoshere and authenticity the most elaborate set could ever convey.
