The Eagle Huntress

Movie

"The Eagle Huntress" is the true story of Aisholpan, a Mongolian girl who strives to become the first female Eagle Hunter in 2,000 years of male-dominated history. Under the tutelage and support of her father and her grandfather, she learns all aspects of this ancient tradition.

That included her being dropped by rope into the nest of an eagle, where she captured a baby from a nest, taming and raising that eaglet and training it for the annual Golden Eagle Festival, which involves competing against male Eagle Hunters from all over the country.

The Eagle Huntress features a feminist message that’s easy to get behind and an inherently charismatic subject who’s easy to root for, so it’s difficult to separate one’s affect...

Aisholpan is a 13-year-old girl who lives in Mongolia, dividing her time between a boarding school and her nomadic family’s campsite.

A rite-of-passage movie about a girl’s dreams of being the first female to enter the Golden Eagle competition is pleasantly feelgood, plus it’s narrated by Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley.
