The Eagle Huntress

Aisholopan, a 13-year-old Mongolian girl becomes the first female in twelve generations of her nomadic tribe to become an eagle hunter in the beautifully shot The Eagle Huntress narrated by Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens).While there are many old Kazakh eagle hunters who 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’s determined.Nominated for the 2017 BAFTA for Best Documentary and featuring some of the most breathtaking cinematography ever captured of the Mongolian Steppe, The Eagle Huntress is a gripping tale of an underdog that boasts the dramatic force of an epic narrative film.
