The Eagle Huntress Documentary Trailer

"On the edge of civilization, her mind will be tested, her strength will be challeged, and her spirit will take her on the adventure of a lifetime." Sony Classics has debuted a second trailer for the documentary The Eagle Huntress, directed by Otto Bell, one of my favorite docs out of the Sundance Film Festival this year. The doc follows the story of a young teenage girl in Mongolia named Aisholpan, living in the mountains with her family, who becomes the first ever female "Eagle Hunter" in over 2,000 years male dominance in their culture. I totally fell for this documentary when I first saw it at Sundance, and I've been hoping that Sony Classics will throw their weight behind it and help it find an audience in US theaters. This new trailer is not as good as the first one, as it has some overly-dramatic voiceover that is a bit distracting, but give it a shot.

Here's the second official trailer for Otto Bell's doc The Eagle Huntress, direct from SPC's YouTube:

The Eagle Huntress Documentary

Also read Jordan Raup's review on The Film Stage calling this "one of the year's essential documentaries."

This spellbinding documentary follows the inspiring story of Aisholpan, a 13-year-old nomadic Mongolian girl who is fighting an ingrained culture of misogyny to become the first female Eagle Hunter in over 2,000 years of male-dominated history. Through breathtaking aerial cinematography and intimate verite footage, the film captures her personal journey while also addressing important universal themes like female empowerment, the natural world, coming of age and the onset of modernity. The Eagle Huntress is directed by filmmaker Otto Bell, making his feature directorial debut after following Aisholpan for two years. He has directed over 15 short documentaries before this. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Sony Classics will open The Eagle Huntress in theaters starting November 2nd this fall.
