Filmmaker Hunter Weeks on Where the Yellowstone Goes

Boulder-based filmmaker Hunter Weeks is bringing his new film, Where the Yellowstone Goes, to the Denver FilmCenter tonight at 7 p.m.; the screening will be followed by a Q&A session. Weeks and his crew -- including his wife, Sarah Hall, and Denver-based filmmaker Mike Dion, a frequent collaborator -- spent thirty days floating in drift boats along the Yellowstone, an undammed river that flows freely for more than 600 miles.

We recently caught up with Weeks to talk about the history of the river and why it is worth protecting. (Weeks is donating 25 percent of tonight's proceeds to the Greenbacks, a project of Trout Unlimited, and its work to protect fisheries and waterways.)
