(Mongolia, United Kingdom, United States of America ) 2016 | 87 minutes | Otto Bell | Kazakh with English subtitles
Thirteen-year-old Aisholpan 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 that has been handed down from father to son for centuries. Set against the breathtaking expanse of the Mongolian steppe and featuring awe-inspiring cinematography, this intimate tale of a young girl’s quest has the dramatic force of an epic narrative film. Narrated by Daisy Riley.
"In form and content, this is a movie that expands your sense of what is possible. A girl can hunt with an eagle. A camera can fly." –A.O.Scott, The New York Times
