“At 56 packed minutes, One October is a small masterpiece of cinema." - Gerald Peary, the Arts Fuse

“One October is a narrative time capsule, offering up the gift of hindsight that in turns feels both tellingly ominous and gleefully hopeful." - Samantha Sanders, Audiences Everywhere

From producer Edward Norton, One October is a lyrical time capsule that offers a window into the shifting heart of New York City. Filmed entirely in October of 2008, a time when gentrification is rapidly displacing the working and middle classes, Wall Street is plummeting, and Senator Obama is making his first presidential bid, the story begins with Iowa-raised Clay Pigeon, an intrepid radio host who takes to the streets of New York City to talk to everyday citizens who are facing the uncertaintly of change.
