Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Fascinating and endearing film about a teenage girl's fight to become an Eagle Hunter, a skill usually passed down from father to son in her traditional Mongolian society. Stunning scenery.

Excellent film, thoroughly enjoyed by all who came. Sub-titles a bit tricky to read.

Great response to this. Heartwarming, charming, enjoyed the relationship between father and daughter and what fantastic scenery!
