  The Eagle Huntress
  Spreads her wings
  Set against the breathtaking landscape of the Mongolian Altai mountains, THE EAGLE HUNTRESS is the awe-inspiring story of a 13 year old girl and her quest to become the first female eagle hunter in 12 generations of her Kazakh family. A stunning rites-of-passage feature which premiered at Sundance, the film is the directorial debut from British director Otto Bell and releases in UK cinemas on 16 December through Altitude Film Distribution.

THE EAGLE HUNTRESS follows Aisholpan as she trains 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 believes that she has the determination and confidence to succeed. After months of training with her father, Aispolpan is ready to test her abilities and enters the renowned Golden Eagle Festival to face off against 70 of the greatest Kazakh eagle hunters in Mongolia.

THE EAGLE HUNTRESS is executive produced and narrated by STAR WARS's Daisy Ridley. Like Ridley’s character Rey, Aisholpan never doubts her ability to be strong or brave. She recognizes no obstacles and refuses to have her ambition denied. While she practises an ancient art, Aisholpan's story is a modern and inspiring one because she represents a world where a young girl’s dreams - no matter how challenging - can come true.
