The Eagle Huntress – Sandy Spring Film Series

January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$10

Aishol-pan, a 13-year-old girl, trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her Kazakh family 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, Nurgaiv, believes that a girl can do anything a boy can, as long as she’s determined.

This evening’s program is sponsored by the Women’s Alliance for Democracy and Justice.
