The Eagle Huntress

1h 27m Documentary 2016

Set against the stunning backdrop of the Altai Mountains of Northwestern Mongolia, this enchanting documentary follows Aisholopan, a tenacious 13-year-old girl from a nomadic family who aspires to break 2,000 years of male-dominated tradition to become the first female Eagle Hunter. Under her fathers’ guidance, she learns to tame a young eagle and leads it on a fox hunt, and then sets her eyes on competing in the all-male Golden Eagle Festival. Breathtaking aerial photography, fascinating cultural insight and a plucky young heroine make for an instant world cinema classic that will captivate audiences of all ages.
