“#whilewewatch,” a documentary film by Kevin Breslin, will be featured at 8 p.m. tonight at Guild Hall in East Hampton as part of the John Drew Theater’s Red Carpet film series. There will be a talkback discussion with the director after the film.
Mr. Breslin directed the award-winning “Living for 32,” the story of Colin Goddard, a survivor of the massacre at Virginia Tech on April 16, 2007. The film was about how Mr. Goddard’s terrible experience caused him to advocate for changing the liberal gun laws in this country.
In “#whilewatch,” Mr. Breslin takes the viewer to the birthplace of the Occupy Wall Street movement that began in Zuccotti Park in New York City and quickly spread, despite a lack of attention on the part of the major media, Mr. Breslin said. It was that fact that drew his attention to the movement. The director said his film is “what democracy looks like. We hear it from their voices, pain, energy, and honesty.” Tickets cost $22 for the general public, $20 for Guild Hall members.
