A large-screen feast, this spellbinding documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is training to become the first female eagle hunter in Kazakh society. Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes of coming of age, natural environment, female empowerment and facing the modern world. For Sunshine Coast eagle and nature lovers, the film is a soaring vision of majestic beauty.
In form and content, this is a movie that expands your sense of what is possible. A girl can hunt with an eagle. A camera can fly.
