Come check out the Washington, D.C. Premiere of the film Where the Yellowstone Goes during the DC Environmental Film Festival.
This is a 1 hr 28 min film that has you embark on a 30-day drift boat expedition down the longest free-flowing river in the continental United States. From the Gateway to Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana to the confluence of the Missouri River at historic Fort Buford, North Dakota, two boats drift north along the Yellowstone River. Led by a fly-fishing guide and fourth-generation Montanan, this inspirational journey takes place amongst the peaceful sounds of a massive water flow, flanked on each side by rugged mountains, plains full of big game and an unending sky showcasing bald eagles and osprey. Connect with colorful characters, get lost in the hypnotic cast of a fly rod and experience fireside stories on this river adventure. Intimate portraits of locals in both booming cities and dusty, dwindling towns along the Yellowstone River illustrate the history and controversies surrounding this enigmatic watershed, leading to questions about its future. Directed and produced by Hunter Weeks.
Introduced by Rebecca Wodder, Senior Advisor to the Secretary, U.S. Department of the Interior.
