About the Film:
In 2011, I started hearing about the oilfields of North Dakota; a place where itinerant workers lived in mancamps, local residents were being priced out of their homes and oil flares lit up the sky.

I went there to film over the course of four years, and then created an impressionistic portrait of this place by interviewing workers, long time residents, and a Native American who talks about the environmental impact. I also recorded the astounding and awful intrusions of oil machinery on the landscape.  Here is the trailer:
