The Eagle Huntress (OC)
(OC) means this is an Open Caption version of our feature movie. Captions are titles designed for the deaf and hard of hearing. In addition to the actor’s dialogue, captions include notations for sound effects, music, and other background noises, when these elements are important to the on-screen action. The Lyric Theatre will play an Open Caption version of the movie provided it exists; we apologize in advance if we announce an Open Caption screening and discover when we receive the movie--within a few days of the movie’s run--that an Open Caption version does not in fact exist. This spellbinding documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is fighting to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family. Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity.
