The Kazakh tradition of eagle hunting has been passed down from father to son for over 2,000 years in Western Mongolia. Aisholpan, a determined and spellbinding 13-year-old, dreams of becoming the first female huntress. With the support of her family, and against all odds, she trains diligently with her father to prepare for an annual competition, the first step on her quest to gain acceptance. Executive produced by documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock and narrated by Star Wars heroine Daisy Ridley, The Eagle Huntress stunningly captures Aisholpan’s breathtaking journey to break down gender barriers and achieve her dream.
