UK/Mongolia/USA | 87 min | G | DCP | Dir. Otto Bell

THE EAGLE HUNTRESS follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old girl, 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. 

"'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." - Ariel Scotti (New York Daily News)

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
