Countrywomen immerses us into the world of stock breeders, a physically demanding occupation where sheer will and determination are required. The film foregrounds the diligent work of women involved in agriculture and stockbreeding. It draws attention to the dedication they have towards their line of work despite the circumstances that led them into it. With beautifully composed imagery boasting picturesque landscapes, we’re given a glimpse of these women’s day-to-day routines, living on and operating a cattle farm. We witness the intersection of their roles as mothers, wives and farmers. At its core, this exceptional film is about intention, strength, resilience and the need to adapt to change.
