It was the movie that brought thousands of new people to fly fishing. Director Robert Redford’s interpretation of Norman Maclean’s classic novella about family and fly fishing was an overwhelming success when it came out in the fall of 1992. Set in Missoula, Mont., in the 1920s it brought the beauty of wild fish and wild places to viewers in a semi-autobiographical drama of love and brotherhood in a Western family.
Robert Redford, Sundance Mountain Resort and TU are hosting not one but two screenings of “A River Runs Through It” in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the film’s release. The first is a VIP (invitation only) screening on October 14, 2017. Robert Redford will introduce the film and discuss making this timeless classic. Brian Wimmer, from Sundance Resort Fly Fishing and president of the local Utah County Alpine Anglers Chapter will be conducting the evening and discussing conservation perspectives created by the film. The second screening, on November 10, 2017 is a fly fishing industry and public screening fund-raiser for TU with special guest Jason Borger, who was the technical consultant on the film. Free TU gift memberships will be available at both screenings for attendees who are not currently members of TU, courtesy of Brian Wimmer and Sundance Mountain Resort.
