A Movie “The Eagle Huntress” 11/27/16

November 28, 2016

It is really a cool movie. Aisholpan, a 13 year-old girl, trains to become the first female eagle huntress in 12 generations of her Kazah family. She is strong, she loves eagles, she loves nature, she loves her family, she loves her friends at school, SO she is a good girl! This attempt is against to the pinnacle of a tradition that has been handed down father to son for centuries, but never to daughter. While there are many old/traditional Kazak eagle hunters who totally reject the idea of any female taking a part of this tradition Aisholpan’s father, Nurgaiv, believes in his daughter for her ability and talent. He thinks a girl can do anything a boy can do, as long as she is determined. They work hard together, and… I should not say everything. You must watch this movie. Go Aisholpan!
