Where the Yellowstone Goes Premieres in Arlington June 14

Where The Yellowstone Goes, a feature documentary film from award-winning filmmaker Hunter Weeks,
announces a premiere screening at the Arlington Drafthouse on Thursday, June 14 at 7:30 p.m. The
event is presented by Urban Angler.

Filmed on the Yellowstone River last summer, Where The Yellowstone Goes will host its world premiere
in Bozeman, Mont., on May 19, after having debuted last month at the Newport Beach Film Festival.

Presented by Trout Headwaters, Inc., Where the Yellowstone Goes is a feature length documentary
following a 30-day drift boat fly-fishing journey along the Yellowstone River. Filmed in August and
September of 2011, the film follows a small crew down the Yellowstone from Gardiner, Mont., to the
confluence of the Missouri River at Fort Buford, N.D., a nearly 600-mile journey.

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. The Yellowstone begins its journey within
Yellowstone National Park, serving as the primary watershed for the Yellowstone ecosystem and
ultimately reaching a significant portion of the U.S. through its tributary systems. 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.

“People are becoming more aware of how important our nation’s waterways are,” said Weeks, who will
attend the screening and conduct a Q&A session afterward. “I think this film will really resonate and help
people understand that they can do something. This isn’t just about fly fishing and conservation, this is a
real story of life.”

Led by fourth-generation Montanan and fly fishing guide Robert Hawkins, the crew explores fly-fishing,
conservation, and the type of clarity that can only be found upon slowing down. Along the way, the film
captures notes of wisdom as told by the locals met throughout the 30-day adventure. 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.
