Sandy Spring Film Series: The Eagle Huntress
Please note, this event has expired.
A beautiful and inspiring movie about a 13 year old Kazakh girl from Mongolia who attempts to become the first female eagle hunter to complete in the annual Golden Eagle Festival.
Aishol-pan, a 13-year-old girl, trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter and rises to the pinnacle of a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for centuries.
While there are many old Kazakh eagle hunters who vehemently reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition, Aisholpan’s father, Nurgaiv, believes that a girl can do anything a boy can, as long as she’s determined.
