Worth the Wait

From the creators of "Butte: The Original"
A new film about the cleanup of one of the nation’s largest Superfund sites premiered at the Mother Lode Theater in Butte on Saturday, November 12th , 2016.

“Worth the Wait” is an hour long film that documents the 30 years of reclamation of more than a hundred years of mining and smelting wastes that accumulated in the upper Clark Fork River Basin in Montana, from the mines in Butte to the smelters in Anaconda all the way to the Milltown Dam near Missoula.

Butte: The Original

A documentary feature length film about Butte, Montana
The film is an historically accurate account of the events in Butte’s rich history that shaped the communities unique traditions and character. Butte has always been a mining town; it is also a community made up of immigrants from 39 different countries whose ethnic diversities merged in the crucible of underground hard rock mining, fostering a culture of working together, of protecting one another, of finding common ground, of emerging from downtimes not embittered but emboldened, and facing down adversity, if not to thrive, then to persevere. That is what makes Butte unique and that is what this film is about.
