The Eagle Huntress (U)

Monday 8th January 2018

Doors and bar open 7pm, film starts 8pm

Our first film of the New Year will be The Eagle Huntress...

A spellbinding documentary that follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is fighting to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family. Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity.

'David Attenborough's Planet Earth II has set the bar high for wildlife documentaries but The Eagle Huntress comfortably makes it over, thanks to some terrific footage.' Matthew Bond, Mail on Sunday

'The Eagle Huntress is a remarkable documentary, one that combines superb National Geographic-style photography with a storyline that plays out like a real-life folktale with a feminist undertow.' Geoffrey Macnab, The Independant
