Original Score Composed and Produced by Paul Brill
Performed by Dave Eggar
Recorded 2016-17 at Casa de Rico y Luca Studios and

by Ed McEntee
Assisted by Kate Lucas

ONE OCTOBER follows intrepid radio host Clay Pigeon as he takes to the streets of New York City in October 2008 to talk to everyday citizens who are facing the promise and uncertainty of change.

As the month begins, the city unfolds as a densely choreographed stage for rituals marking the onset of autumn: city dwellers bask in the last days of sunshine; jack-o-lanterns begin to decorate the stoops; observant Jews toss breadcrumbs into the Hudson River on Rosh Hashanah and Muslims mark the end of their Ramadan fast with Eid al-Fitr prayers and expressions of forgiveness.

Yet in this historic time, the city—and the nation—teeters on a precipice. Major investment banks have failed and the Dow has tumbled. In nearly all neighborhoods the real estate explosion of the preceding decade beckons the wealthy and displaces longtime residents with fewer means. And while presidential candidate Obama’s message of “Hope” seems to be everywhere, even optimistic voters wonder if anyone can truly change America’s course.

Nuanced, artful, and often humorous, the film celebrates the resiliency of the human spirit and the dynamism of a multicultural metropolis. Seen from our current vantage point, the film is also a remarkable time capsule that presages the roiling political upheaval spreading across the country today.
