A few years ago my family and I went to see this amazing documentary about a teenage girl who wants to become the first eagle huntress in Mongolia in our local indie theater. I thought it would be fantastic to look back at this movie review which was one of the first I had ever written on this blog and I hope you enjoy!
The Reason Why I Loved this Beautiful Documentary
This documentary, narrated by Daisy Ridley, follows the wonderful story of a teenage girl named Aisholpan who becomes the first eagle huntress in Mongolia.
We are introduced to her at a boarding school located in a small town miles away from her home. It’s the last day of school for that week and she is taken home by her father on their cute moped. Her family is nomads that live in a simple circular hut in the midst of a vast barren plain edged with beautiful rocky mountains. Her family consists of a younger sister, younger brother, her mother, and her father.
