Montclair’s Own Dan Gill Featured in Powerful Independent Film

Montclair resident and educator Dan Gill will be featured in a film at this year’s Montclair Film Festival at the Wellmont Theater on Saturday, May 2nd at 2:30pm.

Mr. Gill has taught at Montclair’s Glenfield Middle School for years, but one student still haunts him. Tourrie Moses was a gifted student, always engaged in his work and eager to learn. But as the years went by, Moses became less and less interested in school and spent more time on the streets, until a tragic decision changed his life forever. In THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY, director John Block follows Mr. Gill as he reconnects with Moses, illuminating the relationship between the two men and examining the circumstances that lead to and the aftermath of Moses’ fateful actions.
