Dubois’ next ‘Move’: Stadium screen

August 11, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Smile, Woonsocket: You’re on Derek Dubois’ candid camera.
In his first feature-length documentary, the award-winning filmmaker has created “City on the Move,” a close-up look at the city’s triumphant spirit through difficult times.

Set to premiere at the Stadium Theatre on Aug. 28, the film, whose title is borrowed from the city’s motto, focuses largely on the rigors of staging the 2013 Autumnfest celebration, a carnival of food, fun and music that’s been taking place every Columbus Day weekend for over 30 years. But the city native and adjunct professor of film at Rhode Island College says “City on the Move” takes time out to explore the biggest civic events of last year, including the city’s struggles with bankruptcy, the heated campaign leading to the election of Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt and the defeat of her predecessor, Mayor Leo T. Fontaine, and the memorable one-night block party last August.
