BOOMTOWN

THE FEATURE FILM

 

I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man the opportunity to make a living.”

- John D Rockefeller

WELCOME TO BOOMTOWN!

Our film follows one man's journey across the country to Williston, North Dakota, home of the modern day Gold Rush.  In an effort to make ends meet, our main character leaves his family behind to pursue a grueling, yet highly coveted, job in a now booming oil industry.  Along the way, he encounters the trials and tribulations shared by thousands of Americans every year as they stake their claim on the American Dream.  

Through the participation of real life locals and their true stories, this is a unique tale of a man with modern day oil fever and the town to which he embarks. Authentic and original, this is Boomtown.
