EAGLE HUNTRESS (U)
Wednesday 19th July 2017 - 7:30 pm
Dir: Otto Bell, 2016, USA,101 mins.
With Daisy Ridley, Aisholpan Nurgaiv, Rys Nurgaiv.
The cinematography alone makes this documentary worth viewing, set amidst the stunning Mongolian landscape of the Altai mountains. The subject matter too is fascinating. Aisholpan is a thirteen year old girl determined to pursue the family tradition of hunting with golden eagles. However this is a masculine role deemed unsuitable for women. The elders of the village may disapprove but her father is willing to help his feisty daughter.
