The Eagle Huntress (2016, UK/Mongolia/USA, Dir. Otto Bell, 87 mins, U) part subtitled

Director: Otto Bell ● Featuring: Aisholpan Nurgaiv, Rys Nurgaiv and Daisy Ridley.

For centuries, the Kazakh nomads of the Altai Mountains have trained golden eagles to catch the animals they need for food and fur. It’s a tradition handed down from father to son. 

But now 13-year-old Aisholpan, the daughter of national champion Rys, demands to learn the secrets of hunting with eagles for herself. Strong, determined, devoted to her father but also one of the girls, she faces the dual challenges of coping with a wild animal and the scepticism of the older generation. 

Filmed in the stunning Mongolian countryside, with an English voice-over by Daisy Ridley, this is one of the most inspirational documentaries you’ll ever see!

With one showing at 2.30pm ONLY.
