THE OVERNIGHTERS

A Film by Jesse Moss 

Desperate, broken men come from far and wide to North Dakota to chase their dreams and run from their demons, hoping to find work in the local oil fields. The powerful Oscar nominated feature documentary, The Overnighters follows the life of a local Pastor, who risks everything to help them. Following its critically acclaimed theatrical release it comes to DVD on 9 February 2015, courtesy of Dogwoof.

Winner of Special Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival 2013 and the Grand Jury Prize at Full Frame Film Festival 2014, it is produced, directed and filmed by Jesse Moss (Full Battle Rattle, Speedo) alongside producer Amanda McBaine (Speedo, The Investigators). This hard-hitting, engrossing and painfully relevant film offers an urgent and compassionate picture of life in 21st Century America.
