Truly a movie made for the OSPREY’S BIG SCREEN for it’s jaw-dropping scenery.
Aishol-pan, a 13-year-old girl, 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. She faces many obstacles along the way. Many old Kazakh eagle hunters vehemently reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition.
“A bliss-out.” New York Times.
“A sky-high documentary salute to girl power is at its best when it soars with a purity of purpose while propelled by a humbly determined 13-year-old Mongolian girl on the brink of breaking through an ancient gender divide…. Add a dizzying panoramic setting in a remote locale atop the Altai Mountains with wide-open vistas and frigid temperatures that can drop to 40 below zero and this true-life tale is prepped for emotional takeoff.” RogerEbert.com

Canadian artist, Janet Moore, has studied at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in BC, and the Simon Fraser University Summer Institute Intensive Program in BC. She has worked as a professional visual artist for the past 25 years. Over time, Moore has explored many forms of expression including sculptural installation, painting in oil/acrylic, and more recently combining techniques in mixed media/collaged painting and monoprint/painting. She is the recipient of a number of awards from the Canada Council and the Yukon Government, with her work being included in various collections throughout the country.
If you caught Canadian legendary comedian Mike MacDonald at the Osprey last fall, you’ll remember the opening act. Comedian Marc Sauve entertained with side splitting-jokes and knee-slapping stories. He’s returning, this time with not one but TWO other comedians.
