Minnesota filmmaker captures the lure of money and oil in North Dakota

Christina Clusiau says a lot of her friends were leaving northern Minnesota and heading to the oil fields of North Dakota when she came up with the idea of joining them.

Her friends were mining oil. She was after stories. She’s a filmmaker and has released Black Rush Life. She found it’s more complicated than just a rush for money.

    Quite a stark difference from what some people choose to believe about the types of opportunities there are in the oil fields and sheds light on the psychological and emotional toll it takes on the people working there.
