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.

Reviews
It poses piercing existential questions about purpose and independence, particularly for women choosing work that has long been deemed the exclusive province of men.
Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
With "Bitterbrush," Mahdavian announces herself as a filmmaker with a keen eye for capturing the contradictions and complexities of outsider women's lives.
