Award-winning filmmaker Hunter Weeks follows a 30-day drift boat
fly-fishing journey along the Yellowstone River, covering a nearly 600-mile
stretch from Gardiner, Montana, to the confluence of the Missouri river at Fort
Buford, North Dakota. Led by fourth-generation
Montanan and fly fishing guide Robert Hawkins, the film crew explores
fly-fishing, conservation, and the type of clarity that can only be found upon
slowing down. Along the way, they capture notes of wisdom as told by the locals
met throughout the 30-day adventure.
The longest undammed river in the contiguous United States,
the Yellowstone River is considered by many to
be one of the greatest trout rivers in the world. The section of river in
Montana from Gardiner to Livingston has the official “Blue Ribbon”
classification. Beginning its journey within Yellowstone National Park, the
river serves as the primary watershed for the Yellowstone ecosystem. In July of
2011, an ExxonMobil pipeline running beneath the river ruptured, spilling an
estimated 63,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone. The filming captures some
of the clean-up effort less than two months after the spill. With Montana’s captivating scenery at the forefront, Where the Yellowstone Goes takes a
closer look at the impact people have on each other and on our environment. Where the Yellowstone Goes is more than
a simple journey. It’s about people, our environment, and the harmony that
exists between them.
