The trailer for Jesse Moss’ timely, wrenching documentary “The Overnighters,” winner of the 2014 Sundance Special Jury Prize, has debuted.
This tragic study of unemployment in America centers on a North Dakota town where the discovery of an untapped oil field attracts jobseekers. But dreams of prospect-style wealth quickly turn to disillusion as limited jobs
are filled almost overnight, and a local pastor’s charity brings chaos to a now-divided community, dragging everyone’s demons out into the light.
“The Overnighters” opens in NY October 10, LA October 31.
