A new adventure feature film, Where the Yellowstone Goes, presented by Trout Headwaters, Inc., premiered in Bozeman to a sell-out crowd on May 19. The historic Ellen Theater was filled to capacity with 450 attendees.
Where the Yellowstone Goes follows a 30-day drift boat journey down the longest “undammed” river in the lower 48. 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. Viewers can connect with colorful characters, get lost in the hypnotic cast of a fly rod, and experience silhouetted moments of fireside stories on this heartfelt river adventure.
At THI the legendary Yellowstone is the river we admire every day through the windows of our Paradise Valley, Mont. headquarters. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the way the film portrays this precious resource,” says THI President Michael Sprague. “It will continue to advance understanding and conservation of theYellowstone River for many years to come.”
Other sponsors of the film include the Montana Department of Tourism, Simms, Costa del Mar, Nemo, and American Rivers.
