The Overnighters screening

The Overnighters is a documentary examining job-seekers chasing the broken American Dream to Williston, North Dakota, a tiny oil boomtown. In this modern-day Grapes of Wrath, tens of thousands of unemployed hopefuls show up, but find themselves without work or a place to take shelter. A pastor in town lets the migrants sleep in his church, which leads to resistance from his community, and ultimately profound consequences. The film won the Special Jury Prize for intuitive filmmaking at this year's Sundance Film Festival. See why as it plays for a week at the Nuart. Director Jesse Moss will offer firsthand insight to moviegoers with a Q&A after the 7:30pm screenings on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, and after the 2:50pm screening on Nov. 2. He'll also introduce the 9:45pm screenings on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, and the 5:10pm screening on Nov. 2.
