Film Night: The Eagle Huntress

The Whitaker, Rossendale, BB4 6RE
Thu 16th November 2017

Thirteen-year-old Aisholpan trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle huntress. A tradition normally handed down from Father to Son. The film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes of female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age, and the onset of modernity, but its focus on family ends and our relationship with the natural world makes the file truly affecting.
