Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 309: Thu Nov 6

The Overnighters (Moss, 2014): ICA Cinema, 6.45pm

Here is the ICA introduction:

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. 

Here (and above) is the trailer.
