Flyway Launches New Microcinema with Screening of “The Overnighters”

Jul 2, 2014

OvernightersTo celebrate the opening of its new “Minema,” a 40-seat microcinema in Pepin, Wisconsin, the Flyway Film Festival will screen the groundbreaking film The Overnighters on July 25th and 26th.

The Overnighters director Jesse Moss spent two years following workers lured by the oil rush to Williston, North Dakota. The film takes unexpected turns as a local Lutheran pastor offers the men shelter and counsel at his community church, putting the commandment “love thy neighbor” to the test. The film won a Documentary Special Jury Award at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

The new Flyway Minema will bring the best of independent film to the Lake Pepin area with monthly screenings and events.

“We believe that the Flyway can be a year-round cultural asset, as well as an annual event,” says Flyway Film Festival executive director Rick Vaicius. “Keeping the festival spirit alive throughout the year seems like the logical next step as we continue to grow the Flyway.”

The Minema is located in downtown Pepin at 406 1st Street, near the world-renowned Harbor View Café. Formerly an ice cream shop, the building will now be home to the Minema as well as the Flyway Film Festival office.

The film will screen on Friday, July 25th at 8:00 pm, and Saturday, July 26th at 7:00 pm (please note different start times).

Tickets are available here.

$7.00/ ticket online in advance
$8.00 at the door beginning one hour prior to start time

Presentation of The Overnighters is sponsored by Lake Pepin Partners in Preservation, Maiden Rock Concerned Citizens, and Buffalo Defenders.
