"The Drift" is a documentary from The Content Lab, LLC out of Lander, Wyoming. It is described as "A true story of the Old West in the modern world." From the pasture and mesas along the Green River to the alpine meadows near the Continental Divide, "The Drift" tells a story embedded in the history and culture of Wyoming: a cattle drive, and the people who ride it. For over a century, ranchers along the Green River have driven their cattle long distances to high pastures in the mountains of Wyoming. Now they must find their way past drilling rigs, vacation homes, grizzly bears... and an uncertain future.
In the midst of a monumental landscape, the documentary focuses in on authentic, unforgettable characters: Bob Beard and his grand-daughter Sara riding among the snorting, pluming cattle in the Counting Gate chute, shouting out and counting brands; grizzly bears picking off straggling calves at "the Bend" as biologist Zach Turnbull tries to trap and collar the bad actors; old Bobby Gilbank riding out in a lightning storm along Fish Creek to doctor a sick calf. Our cameras capture the grit and grime, the calving and winter storms, the personal stories of loss and love. And hovering over the extraordinary mountain landscapes, a foreboding cloud: the Drift itself is endangered by the encroaching modern world.
The documentary will air again on Wyoming PBS on Wednesday, December 7th at 7:00PM (Pinedale Online Editor’s comment: note new date and time from our earlier postings).
There will be an additional screening at the Wyoming Stock Growers meeting on Monday, December 5th at 7:45PM at the Parkway Plaza, American Room in Casper, Wyoming.
