The Eagle Huntress


Synopsis

Amongst the isolated Kazakh tribe in the mountains of northwest Mongolia the long tradition of eagle hunting has only been practiced by men for centuries. 13-year-old Aisholpan has other ideas however, determined to follow in her father’s footsteps and take part in the Golden Eagle Festival. Her decision causes controversy amongst older members of the community but Aisholpan is determined to prove them wrong, embarking on a strict program of training with a new eagle and the ever watchful eye of her father. This remarkable documentary captures the astounding beauty of the landscape, introducing audiences to a culture entirely different to our own in warm, insightful fashion. At its heart is Aisholpan: an inspirational, resourceful and courageous female role model.

Hunting with eagles.
