A feature documentary film from award-winning filmmaker Hunter Weeks will host its premier in Billings next month. The adventure feature, "Where the Yellowstone Goes," filmed on the Yellowstone River last summer, will screen at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6 at The Babcock Theatre.
"This is a story that captures the essence of what makes Montana so special," said director Hunter Weeks.
The crew floated nearly 600 miles in a hand-made drift boat, capturing notes of wisdom as told by the locals they met throughout the 30-day adventure on the Yellowstone River. The longest undammed river in the United States, the Yellowstone's unspoiled beauty is legendary. With elements of fly-fishing, conservation, and the type of clarity that can only be found upon slowing down, "Where the Yellowstone Goes" is more than a simple journey. It's about people, the environment, and the harmony that exists between them, Weeks said.
Immediately following the screening, the filmmakers will participate in a question and answer session. Tickets to the film are $10, available at Babcock Theater.
