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
