Budding Roxbury filmmaker debuts documentary 'A Day And Night In Dewey Square'

'A Day And Night In Dewey Square' documents 24 hours at an Occupy Boston demonstration.

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.
