This is a wonderful film for the whole family*. We would love to have you join us.
The film follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old Kazakh girl, who trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her family to become an eagle hunter. It is beautifully filmed and has been described as a captivating, fairy-tale documentary. It just missed out on an Oscar nomination but was nominated for awards across the globe. Here’s what a couple of critics had to say:
“The movie’s restrained second half stuns, ranking as one of the most magical stretches of nonfiction film making in recent years”
“Even if Aisholpan’s training is for the camera, it doesn’t make it any less extraordinary. Especially in this remarkable environment, captured in breathtakingly crisp digital video”
We’ll also be screening One Small Step – a brilliant Oscar nominated animated ‘short’.
A perfect programme for a dark dank Autumn evening!
* Please note The Eagle Huntress (Cert. U : 89 mins) has English narration and the film’s foreign language dialogue has English subtitles. These might prove challenging for very young audience members.
