Everything Went Down at Eugene International Film Festival

PSU Film Professor Dustin Morrow’s Film “Everything Went Down” to Screen at the Eugene International Film Festival

November 9th, 2013  7:00pm 

Portland State University film professor Dustin Morrow’s feature-length musical film “Everything Went Down” will screen at 7:00pm on Saturday, November 9th, at the Regal Cinemas in Eugene as an official selection of the Eugene International Film Festival.

Everything Went Down” is a contemporary musical that tells the story of a young college professor who has become a shell of a person following the death two years earlier of his wife. Crippled by a numbing grief, he's succeeded at shutting himself off from the world. At the same time, a young singer-songwriter has begun to lose faith in the struggle to make a name for herself as a musician. Bogged down by the pressures of turning her art into commerce, she has lost sight of why she wanted to make music in the first place. The film chronicles the budding friendship between the professor and the singer, as the energy and beauty of her music begins to bring him back to life, and the value of her songs to this man reawakens her to the merits of making music. 

The film has screened nationwide at more than a dozen film festivals, and received Best Film honors at both the SENE Festival in Providence and the Oregon Independent Film Festival in Portland.  Learn more about the film at http://www.everythingwentdown.com.
