Winner of the Special Jury Award at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, this raw documentary follows the progress of a community in North Dakota, to which the sudden discovery of a vast oilfield inspired thousands of impoverished Americans to migrate in search of work and fortune.
Focusing on a charismatic Lutheran pastor as he struggles alongside his flock to adjust to the change, the film is at once an in-depth study of a society undergoing transformation, and a powerful testament to small-town America’s fight for survival in the face of economic crisis.
The Overnighters, dir. Jesse Moss, USA 2014. 102 mins.
