The Eagle Huntress

Back to listing

Training eagles is a man's job. Nevertheless, Aisholpan has helped her father train them since she was a child. When she turns 13, she decides, with her father's help, to adopt an eagle to turn it into a hunter. Will she manage to break with tradition? This documentary, the first film from Otto Bell, has won over both audiences and juries at a number of festivals, including Sundance and Toronto.
