Montana Film Festival Presents a monthly offering in modern & classic independent cinema, culminating in a 4-day festival October 12 - 15, 2022. Keep up with MTFF at montanafilmfestival.org.

In the small South American town of Porvenir, four men on the run from the law are offered $10,000 and legal citizenship if they will transport a shipment of dangerously unstable nitroglycerin to an oil well 200 miles away. Led by Jackie Scanlon (Roy Scheider), the men set off on a hazardous journey, during which they must contend with dangerously rocky roads, unstable bridges, and attacks from local guerillas. The four fight for their lives as they struggle to complete their dangerous quest. Directed by William Friedkin, the late director of The Exorcist, The French Connection, and To Live and Die in L.A.


If William Friedkin‚Äôs masterpiece Sorcerer, about four men driving dynamite trucks through the jungle, had been the big hit movie of 1977 rather than Star Wars [. . . ] now, forty-six years later, we would be living in a different world. What is life like? Does your life feel like having magic powers and saving the galaxy? My life feels like driving a truck full of dynamite over a mountain. -- J.D. Daniels
