Connections: The Eagle Huntress

Course number : FS100   
« back to classes page
This gorgeous film follows the story of Aisholpan, a 13-year-old Kazakh girl from Mongolia, as she attempts to become the first female eagle hunter to compete in the Golden Eagle Festival. The men in her family have been eagle hunters for 12 generations, and she is determined to follow in their footsteps. Although Aisholpan faces disbelief and opposition within the traditionally male sport, she becomes the first female to enter the competition at the annual festival. Competing against 70 of the greatest Kazakh eagle hunters in Mongolia, she wins first place. Set against the breathtaking expanse of the Mongolian steppe, The Eagle Huntress features awe-inspiring cinematography and an amazing young girl who never doubts her ability to be as strong or brave as any boy. While she practices an ancient art, Aisholpan’s story is modern and inspiring because she demonstrates how a young girl’s dreams—no matter how challenging—can come true.
