Film: The Eagle Huntress. Directed by Otto Bell, BAFTA Award for Best Documentary, English subtitles, 87 min., Rated G
This spellbinding documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who trains to become the first female eagle hunter in 12 generations of her Kazakh family. Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity. “…a remarkable documentary, one that combines superb National Geographic-style photography with a storyline that plays out like a real-life folktale with a feminist undertow.” —Geoffrey Macnab, Independent (UK)
