This is the incredible documentary about Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who causes a stir in her tribe by embracing the traditionally male role of Eagle Hunter. For 2,000 years, the Kazakh people of Western Mongolia have practiced a tradition of hunting with golden eagles, whose wingspan can reach up to 7.5 feet wide. Aisholpan is determined to follow in her father's footsteps as an Eagle Hunter. So under the support of her father and grandfather (and very few others), she must learn all the aspects of falconry to compete and - hopefully - gain acceptance.

With a remarkable heroine at its heart and absolutely stunning cinematography this is a great story about overcoming odds - and a look at one of the world's last true wildernesses...

Dir. Otto Bell, UKMongoliaUS, 2016, 87 minutes, some subtitles.
Cast. Daisy Ridley, Aisholpan.
