Budding Roxbury filmmaker debuts documentary ‘A Day And Night In Dewey Square’
Tonight aspiring Roxbury filmmaker Paul Morgan will debut his first film, “A Day And Night In Dewey Square,” a 30-minute documentary that chronicles 24 hours of Occupy Boston’s sit-in at the public space last year.
“The film shows a new revolution where people are putting out a new awareness about jobs, culture, and society as a whole,” said Morgan, who is also a student at Emerson College. “I think some of the issues people were bringing up were issues and experiences I grew up with in my own neighborhood, so I agree with (Occupy Boston). I’ve been seeing these problems for years.”
Morgan said he wanted to sit-in for 24 hours to get a “night and day” perspective on the demonstration.
The free screening will be held at 6:30 p.m. tonight at The Grove Hall Branch Library in Dorchester, and will be followed by a discussion.
