Aisholopan, a 13-year-old Mongolian girl becomes the first female in twelve generations of her nomadic tribe to become an eagle hunter in the beautifully shot 'The Eagle Huntress' narrated by Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens). While there are many old Kazakh eagle hunters who vehemently reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition, Aisholpan’s father Nurgaiv believes that a girl can do anything a boy can, as long as she’s determined. Nominated for the 2017 BAFTA for Best Documentary and featuring some of the most breathtaking cinematography ever captured of the Mongolian Steppe, 'The Eagle Huntress' is a gripping tale of an underdog that boasts the dramatic force of an epic narrative film. ★★★★ "Aisholpan is one of life’s trailblazers – a feminist pioneer who would never in a million years think about herself in those terms" - Cath Clarke, Time Out ★★★★★ "Brilliantly shot, utterly captivating tale of girl power and cultural change" - Trevor Johnston, Radio Times
