    Tuesday, April 18 at 7:30pm 

    The Eagle Huntress (UK-Mongolia-USA. Documentary, 87 minutes, rated G). 
    The focus is on 13-year-old Mongolian girl Aisholpan Nurgaiv, who trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her family to become, yes, an eagle huntress. Even though the male hunters of her culture say it is not the sort of thing a woman should do. “Aisholpan is a 13-year-old girl who lives in Mongolia, dividing her time between a boarding school and her nomadic family’s campsite. With the release of ‘The Eagle Huntress,’ a thrilling new documentary, she may well become something else: a pop-culture heroine with the power to inspire girls (and not only girls) everywhere. It would not be surprising on future Halloweens to spot a handful of Aisholpans, dressed in traditional fur-and-embroidery hunting gear, pigtails fastened with pink bows, amid the throngs of Elsas and Katnisses. A hit at the Sundance and Telluride film festivals, ‘The Eagle Huntress’ has been shaped with wide accessibility in mind. A few moments that might trouble the sensitivities of young viewers — the sacrifice of a sheep at the beginning and the death of a fox at the end — are edited to minimize bloodshed. And the story is a simple and appealing fable of indomitability and father-daughter companionship.” -- New York Times
