Filmmaker and artist Morgan Dews divides his time between Barcelona and New York City. His most recent documentary, Must Read After My Death, a visually daring film about his grandparent's turbulent marriage, had its world premiere in October 2007 at the Sao Paulo International Film Festival.
Morgan was a fellow at the Latino Producers Academy in 2007. He was accepted to the 2006 Sundance Producers Conference with this project. His short film, Elke´s Visit, was an official selection of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. Prior to that, he worked in commercial production in Spain with the likes of Isabel Coixet, Julio Medem, Bruno Delbonnell and Seamus McGarvey.
Morgan's band Easy, with DJ Lippo, produced several critically acclaimed records for Cosmos Records. Their videos, directed and produced by Dews, aired on Spain´s TV3. Easy performed live throughout Spain and at Sónar, Barcelona's International Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Arts. During this period Dews also worked in fine art; engravings with master engraver Tristan Barbarà, interactive lo-tec installations, and video installation. He was a recipient of The Moebius Art Prize for Interactive Art.
In 1995, Dews founded and ran the The Banana Factory, an underground art and culture space in Barcelona´s Born neighborhood. He is the founding editor of Snack, a bilingual art and literary magazine, and is the author of numerous articles for literary and arts magazines and newspapers.
