Williston: a film about the real North Dakota oil boom

Oil: it runs your car, it makes men rich, and it starts wars. But sometimes the effect it has on small communities is the most provocative. After reading a bevy of contradictory media coverage of the current oil boom in North Dakota, my friend Skyler Swezy and I decided to head out to the prairie for a week and film what life is really like in a modern day boomtown. Check out our film and see what happens when a small town is forced to evolve into something it has never been before.
