About This Event

The Eagle Huntress by British director Otto Bell follows Aisholopan, a 13-year-old girl, as she trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter, and rises to the pinnacle of a tradition handed down from father to son for centuries. Set against the breathtaking expanse of the Mongolian steppe of Central Asia,The Eagle Huntress features some of the most awe-inspiring cinematography ever captured in a documentary, giving this intimate tale of a young girl’s quest the dramatic force of an epic narrative film. While many old Kazakh eagle hunters vehemently reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition, Aisholpan’s father Nurgaiv believes that a girl can do anything a boy can, as long as she is determined. In Kazakh with English subtitles, 87 minutes.  http://sonyclassics.com/theeaglehuntress/
