Dawn Borchardt sits down with the most interesting voices in indie film to talk about professional and personal growth in their filmmaking experiences, what their stories mean to them, and how their personal beliefs and histories interweave with the stories they share on screen.
Emelie Mahdavian's sweeping documentary BITTERBRUSH follows Hollyn Patterson and Colie Moline, range riders who are spending their last summer herding cattle in remote Idaho. Totally off the grid with only their dogs as companions, Hollyn and Colie brave inclement weather and perilous work conditions while pondering their futures. A portrait of friendship, life transitions, and the work of two skilled young women in the isolated and beautiful landscape of the American West, BITTERBRUSH is an intimate portrayal of a way of life rarely seen on film.
On this episode, Dawn and Emelie talk about being a woman in a male-dominated profession, shooting a film in remote locations, and balancing filmmaking and motherhood. This film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival, and is now available to stream on Hulu.
