DROP: Earth Day World Premiere (4/22/2021)

Have you ever thought about where the snow goes when it melts from beneath your skis at the end of the season? Well, fly fishing guide and Protect Our Winters (POW) Alliance member, Hilary Hutcheson has – and this Earth Day, she wants to share that journey. 

Drop is a short (but mighty) film that follows a drop of water along its journey from the Continental Divide to the Pacific Ocean. It’s a film of connection and connectivity, which uncovers – after 1500 winding miles – a harsh reality: that changes to the climate may derail that journey with massive consequences. 

Follow Hilary, as she meets the people whose lives are built around the water to see what they’re doing to fight for what they love. From POW founder and pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones to Rick Crawford, founder of the Fly Fishing Climate Alliance to Rachel Schmidt, director of innovative alliances for the Backcountry Hunters & Anglers…the journey is one that intersects many – including each of us.

“What happens in the winter determines the outcome of our summers and we continue to see trends in declining snowpacks, which impact our waterways making it impossible to separate our survival, the ecosystems, and our economy,” said Jake Black, POW Program Director. “What happens next is up to us, collectively, and we have the opportunity to use our passion for these wild places as fuel to protect them together”.

Produced by Patagonia in association with POW and YETI, the Drop world premier takes place on Thursday April 22, 2021 at 6:30PM/MT. Visit ProtectOurWinters.org to learn more and to RSVP for the film screening.
