NO LONGER PLAYING
The Eagle Huntress
Set against the breathtaking expanse of the Mongolian steppe, THE EAGLE HUNTRESS features some of the most awe-inspiring cinematography ever captured in a documentary, giving this intimate tale of a young girl’s quest the dramatic force of an epic narrative film.
It may seem easier to scale one of the steep, snowy peaks of the Altai Mountains of Mongolia than surmount centuries worth of traditional gender roles in the region. But 13-year-old Aisholpan, the cherub-faced star of the documentary, "The Eagle Huntress," did just that.
