The Eagle Huntress
The Eagle Huntress

The Eagle Hunter follows 13-year-old Aisholpan, as she trains to become the first female in twelve 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. Set against the breathtaking expanse of the Mongolian steppe, The Eagle Huntress features some of the most awe-inspiring cinematography ever captured in a documentary, giving this intimate tale of a young girl's quest the dramatic force of an epic narrative film.

The screening will include music performance and samples of Mongolian traditional food with the movie preceded by a traditional Mongolian horse-fiddle performance and Mongolian food. In addition to the program, local hand-made crafts and Mongolian beer will be available for purchase.

The music will feature Bukhchuluun Ganburged (Bukhu) - a virtuosic Throat Singing and Horse Head Fiddle performer, performing the folk musics of Mongolia. A cultural ambassador of his country and a global performer Bukhu combines his skills to transmit the harmony of Mongolian nomads and Shamanic culture through time and space.

Traditional Mongolian and Kazakh hand-made craft will be on sale. Kazakh hand-made crafts are well known for their intricate and colourful designs, and there will be several hand-made crafts such as bags, purses, and dining table placemats with the traditional Kazakh embroidery, as well as hand-made felt slippers, and unique traditional jewellery boxes. There will also be traditional Mongolian souvenirs, such as miniature Mongolian gers (yurt), horse-fiddles, and dolls displaying traditional Mongolian dresses.

For the taste buds enjoy Mongolian Filled Pockets "Khuushuur" and "Bansh" with a Green Head Cabbage Salad on side. Pocket is made of circle of wheat flour dough folded in half around a filling of minced or ground meat (traditionally mutton, beef is also used) and pan- or deep-fried, boiled or steamed.
