THE OVERNIGHTERS - New Oil Rush Documentary with Jesse Moss

vor 4 Jahren

THE OVERNIGHTERS documentary director Jesse Moss shares the trailer, clips, and background information on the film that chronicles the oil rush to North Dakota that resulted in thousands of displaced people without opportunities, like a modern version of HARLAN COUNTY, USA. Pastor Jay Reinke and the support system that he put in place to shelter and care for the crush of people that were following opportunities in the oil fields that were far fewer than they anticipated, plus the heartbreaking truth about the modern dustbowl story of America is explored in this BYOD episode, hosted by Ondi Timoner.

Desperate, broken men chase their dreams and run from their demons in the North Dakota oil fields. Local Pastor Jay Reinke opens his church to “overnighters,” men and women who have come to the region seeking employment in the oil fields. As Pastor Reinke fights for these men and women against growing opposition, he is drawn into the whirlpool of their troubled lives. THE OVERNIGHTERS premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival where it took the Special Jury Award for Intuitive Filmmaking. Jesse Moss worked alone in the field as director, cinematographer and sound recordist.
Jesse Moss is a San Francisco-based filmmaker. He produced, directed and photographed FULL BATTLE RATTLE, about the US Army’s fake Iraq in the Mojave Desert. The film premiered at the 2008 Berlinale (Panorama), won the Special Jury Prize at SXSW and opened theatrically at the Film Forum in New York. Prior to that he produced, directed and photographed SPEEDO: A DEMOLITION DERBY LOVE STORY, which won festival awards and critical raves across the country, aired on PBS/POV and was optioned by Warner Bros Pictures.
