FILM: "The Eagle Huntress" (Oct. 28th) (NoHo);; Dhr. Seven, Amber Larson, Wisdom Quarterly

"The Eagle Huntress" follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old girl from Central Asia [Scythia/Ancient Sakka or Shakya Land (see on the location of the real Kapilavastu), where the Buddha grew up].

She trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter as she 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.
