The Eagle Huntress

For 2,000 years, the Kazakh people of the Altai region in western Mongolia have practiced a tradition of hunting with golden eagles, whose wingspan can reach up to 7.5 feet wide. Though this practice has traditionally been the domain of men, Aisholpan decides that she wants to become an apprentice hunter after spending her childhood helping her father, a renowned eagle hunter, care for his birds. Under the tutelage and support of her father and her grandfather—and very few others—Aisholpan learns all aspects of falconry, from taming her very own eagle to training for an annual competition, where she will compete against 70 eagle hunters on her quest to gain acceptance.

The film, some of which looks staged, is too slick, and its feminist emphasis, complete with Australian performer Sia singing "You can do anything" on the soundtrack, grates. But Aisholpan triumphs over these excesses.

"The Eagle Huntress" is all at once an inspiring story for children of all ages to believe that they can do anything, a reflection of the unfairness of gender roles and a rare and unique look at a remote part of the world.

As unlikely as it is enchanting, "The Eagle Huntress" tells its documentary story with such sureness that falling under its sway is all but inevitable.
