Bismarck’s Grand Theatres Set to Show ‘The Overnighters’ Beginning November 7th
'The Overnighters', a film described as 'a stark portrait of the North Dakota oil boom and its fallout', is set to begin showing at Bismarck's Grand Theatres on Friday, November 7th.
Directed by Jesse Moss, the film focuses on the boomtown of Williston:
In the tiny town of Williston, North Dakota, tens of thousands of unemployed hopefuls show up with dreams of honest work and a big paycheck under the lure of the oil boom. However, busloads of newcomers chasing a broken American Dream step into the stark reality of slim work prospects and nowhere to sleep. The town lacks the infrastructure to house the overflow of migrants, even for those who do find gainful employment.
10% of Ticket sales from 'The Overnighters' will be donated to permanent supportive housing.
