Director Jesse Moss' latest documentary is heading to Blu-ray in February. Pre-orders are now live.
In an early announcement to retailers, Cinedigm is preparing 'The Overnighters' for Blu-ray on February 3.
A modern-day Grapes of Wrath, award-winning documentary 'The Overnighters' is an intimate portrait of job-seekers desperately chasing the broken American Dream to the tiny oil boom town of Williston, North Dakota. With the town lacking the infrastructure to house the overflow of migrants, a local pastor starts the controversial overnighters program, allowing down-and-out workers a place to sleep at the church. His well-meaning project immediately runs into resistance with his community, forcing the clergyman to make a decision which leads to profound consequences that he never imagined.
The Blu-ray/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Deleted scenes; Follow-up interview with subject Jay Reinke; Booklet; and Theatrical trailer.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.93.
