The Eagle Huntress (2016)

Director: Otto Bell. Narrator: Daisy Ridley. 87 min. Rated G. UK/Mongolia/USA. Documentary.

Another one of those worlds you wouldn't experience in a lifetime - other than in a movie. Kazakh nomads use eagles to help them hunt in the freezing cold, and a cheery 13-year-old girl struggles to become the first eagle huntress ever. Reports like these (and similar arguments made in the film) undermine the claim that women should have entirely equal job opportunities to men, but this documentary proves a few exceptional females can handle it. And when you add the stunning cinematography, this is a film delivering a healthy dose of art and reflection to all members of the family.
