The Eagle Huntress

Otto Bell
 
DOP Simon Niblett’s camera seems to fly over the steppe as dozens of eagle hunters gather for the national championship where this well-loved daughter and classic sports underdog must prove herself in a stirring contest.

[T]he Eagle Huntress is a remarkable documentary, one that combines superb National Geographic-style photography with a storyline that plays out like a real-life folktale with a feminist undertow.
(…)
[H]e and his crew have obviously gone to extreme lengths themselves, clambering up mountains and venturing into very forbidding terrain, to capture their footage. In doing so, they’ve managed to make a documentary that belies its obviously modest budget both in its epic quality and in its rugged beauty.
 
Geoffrey Macnab / The Independent
 
 
A soaring, sweet documentary that welcomes its audience into an unexpected new arena, The Eagle Huntress offers up a movie-perfect story with a leading lady who has something to share with everyone.
