The Eagle Huntress
MNFF Winter Screening Series
Sunday, March 12
A delightful and highly acclaimed documentary, “The Eagle Huntress” is director Otto Bell’s first feature and a remarkable film that appeals to audiences of all ages. An enchanting portrait of a quietly determined 13-year old Kazakh girl, Aisholpan, “The Eagle Huntress” beautifully captures her quest to buck the ancient, male only tradition of hunting with eagles in Mongolia. Following her through all the difficult physical and societal challenges she faces in breaking down barriers, Bell has fashioned a rousing and empowering film that ultimately delivers a very good feeling about life’s possibilities.
From Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival Director Lloyd Komesar, “Having seen this gorgeous and uplifting film, I can only say that it truly is a delight for all ages and one of those rare non-animated films that a family can see together [Rated G, by the way].”
