The Eagle Huntress follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old girl, as she trains to become the first female in 12 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, The Eagle Huntress features some of the most awe-inspiring cinematography ever captured in a documentary, giving this intimate tale of a young girl’s quest the dramatic force of an epic narrative film.
Narrated by executive producer Daisy Ridley, and featuring stunning cinematography by Simon Niblett, this riveting documentary from director Otto Bell is a rare look at one of the world's last true wildernesses. It's a larger-than-life story, but one that's anchored by intimate moments. Our young heroine's passion takes her on an incredible journey with an enriching and empowering lesson that will set hearts soaring.
