The Eagle Huntress
Sun 22 January 2017, 16:00 – 18:00 GMT
The Eagle Huntress follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old girl, as she trains to become an eagle hunter, the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to do so. A tradition passed from father to son to centuries, she must overcome old-fashioned attitudes, as well as the blisteringly cold Mongolian winter, to master the ancient art of capturing and training eagles. Set against the breath-taking expanse of the Mongolian steppe and narrated by Daisy Ridley (Star Wars), The Eagle Huntress gives this awe-inspiring, heartwarming tale of a young girl’s quest the dramatic force of an epic narrative film.
