Otto Bell’s stunning documentary follows Aisholpan Nurgaiv, a 13-year-old girl who becomes the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter. It seems impossible to conceive of training wild eagles, with their seven-foot wingspans and razor-sharp talons yet the Kazakh people have been doing so for centuries. After Aisholpan perseveres in the face of danger and manages to capture her own baby eagle her gifts for understanding allows her to form a lasting bond with the bird. This film is a rare look at one of the world’s last true wildernesses and features remarkable cinematography that is balanced by many intimate moments.

USA 2016  Kazakh and English 87 min.
